Garage Studios and Artist Residencies comprise 18 separate workspaces, a shared studio, project rooms, and a paint shop. They are located on the territory of VDNKh in a postconstructivist building erected in 1939, which at various times housed the model buildings School for 280 Students and Polyclinic with an Extension.

From the launch of the Studios in 2019 until 2021, participants were selected by the Museum’s curatorial council. Fourteen studios intended for Moscow-based artists were provided for six months. Four studios were allocated for artist residencies and could be used for up to three months by artists from the Russian regions and abroad.

Since July 2021, the program has changed. The increase in the duration of the program and in the amount of support available are based on the belief that this new format will have a greater impact on both the trajectory of residents’ artistic careers and their creative practices. Garage announced an open call resulting in the selection of twelve participants for Garage Studios’ yearlong program, which includes meetings with tutors and guest contributors. Tutors for the inaugural residency year are the art group Raqs Media Collective, curator Zdenka Badovinac, and artist Cécile B. Evans.

The program aims to create a platform for work, communication, and knowledge exchange between artists from Moscow, the Russian regions, and abroad.

About the building

Garage Studios is located in a pavilion at VDNKh, which was built in 1939 as a model school for 280 students. In the 1950s, it was converted into a polyclinic, to which an extension was added in 1970–1971 that housed an x-ray and diagnostics department. In 2017, the building was transferred to Garage and redesigned by FORM to accommodate artists’ studios and public spaces. As with previous reconstruction projects, Garage aimed to preserve the historical architecture of the pavilion. The large windows of the original school provide ideal lighting conditions for its new purpose.
