The Moscow Museum of Modern Art together with the MMOMA «Free Workshops» School of Contemporary Art and the Tampere University of Applied Sciences presents a group exhibition titled «Convenient Art». The exhibition is held within the framework of the MMOMA Program for Support to Young Artists and the Special Project of the 6th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art.
The notion of affordable art, as the project’s curator notes, covers a wide array of aspects, including the art market pricing, artistic tools for both establishing a dialogue with viewers and interaction with the exhibition space. The artists included in the show explore the convenience of art from the artist’s perspective. They endeavor to define new art forms and practices that require the least amount of effort on the artist’s part and speak the language of the digital age.
Including interactive installations, graphic and video works, sculptures, and performances, the show consists of three mutually connected sessions and aims to explore different ways in which art can accessible for the viewer at the same time being economically efficient for the artist. The first session focuses on art that is convenient in terms of transportation and display. The second and third sessions are built around accessible ways of communicating with the viewer.
Artists: Tatiana Belkina, Elizaveta Veselova, Anton Gaenko, Evgeniya Gorskaya, Natalya Grezina, Stepan Krasnov, Jemina Lindholm, Julia Matinniemi, Alexandra Mitiku, Ekaterina Molchanova, Alexey Riumin.
Free Workshops School of Contemporary Art
The Free Workshops School of Contemporary Art is an educational platform for young artists and curators working in the field of contemporary art. The school was set up by a group of artists and art historians as part of the Museum in 1992. The school’s students study theoretical and practical aspects of contemporary art under eminent lecturers, distinguished figures of culture, philosophers and theorists of contemporary art. The school offers its support to young artists at different stages of their artistic career through organizing group and solo exhibitions and acquiring their works for the museum’s collection.
