A public program entitled Field Research: Weekend Faculty will accompany the exhibition Field Research: Liberating Knowledge featuring a series of public lectures followed by a three weekends of “crit sessions” organized for those who wish to deepen their knowledge of research-oriented practices.

The series of lectures will be open to the public and will give a broad overview of the invited artists’ practice. The crit sessions will be for a limited audience preselected through an open call (see information below) and will offer the opportunity for critical conversations combining theory and practice between aspiring artists, curators, art critics, writers, and researchers residing in Russia or in any of the countries from the Commonwealth of Independent States.
