Fifth Wave. Special Project of the 2nd Garage Triennial of Russian Contemporary Art

Responding to the theme of friendly recommendation that was at the center of the 2nd Garage Triennial of Russian Contemporary Art A Beautiful Night for All the People, the exhibition Fifth Wave presents the personal choice of 1st Triennial participant Ivan Novikov, but in an expanded format. In the role of curator, Novikov chose to show the practices of artists who have left Russia to study or work abroad and currently reside in Austria, Belgium, the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, and France. These “fifth wave” artists do not share a common style or conceptual or political vision, and work in different media: from painting to complex performances. The only thing they have in common is their exclusion from the context of Russian art due to emigration.

Assuming Distance: Speculations, Fakes, and Predictions in the Age of the Coronacene

Conceived in the days of self-isolation, this exhibition is driven by a humanitarian mission to help the arts community, but also aims to produce and show works that explore the vast and intriguing territory of artistic speculation.

Present Continuous

Cancellations and “unrealized” ideas are probably more common in the lives of artists, architects, and institutions than finished projects. As the year 2020 has taught us, our attitude to them needs to change: we should develop a new, therapeutic approach to things that did not happen. Exploring the possibility of such an approach, Present Continuous brings to light incredible stories and names from the history of Russian art, carefully preserved in Garage Archive Collection.

Atelier E.B: Passer-by

Atelier E.B (Atelier Edinburgh-Brussels) is the name with which designer Beca Lipscombe and artist Lucy McKenzie sign their collaborative projects. Formed in 2007, Atelier E.B is a fashion label that produces using local and exploitation-free manufacturing. It operates through networks outside the system of fashion, reinventing conventional modes of display and distribution. This often involves gallery presentations, which combine art, design, and cultural research.
