New Space thanks the US Embassy and “Times Square Arts” for the support.

Exhibition Alexander Shishkin-Hokusai "Letniy Sad is on fire" New Space Free entrance

A project “Letniy Sad is on fire” is made by Russian artist Alexander-Hokusai and dedicated to Letniy Sad (The Summer Garden) in Saint-Petersburg and its restoration in 2012. As a result of the reconstruction, all the marble statues were replaced by the copies from polymer concrete. The history of this garden is closely related to the history of the city itself and the statues made by Italian artists have witnessed all the changings in Saint-Petersburg for several centuries. Remembering the Saint-Petersburg Summer Garden that we’ve lost, a Russian artist Alexander Shishkin creates his own Letniy Sad at the backyard of the Moscow mansion of the XIX century. His work highlights the substitution of the genuine values for surrogates and turns the sculptures into exiles and vagabonds.

Marina Andreykina "Cultural production: what, how and who needs it?" Registration

Marina Andreikina will give a lecture on curator’s role in modern cultural process:

"My goal is to awake people, make them see common models as stereotypes, as a road that everyone takes without looking around. I don’t say that it’s absolutely necessary to do everything the other way, but I want people to realise what they choose.

You need to be completely sure in the importance of art and culture every minute while doing them.

And most of all it concerns curators, because their choice defines a cultural field we’re going to live in; a cultural field of the New Space as well."

Lecture Katya Bochavar "A lecture about everything" New Space Registration

An artist and curator Katya Bochavar will share her professional experience and her own understanding of being an artist.

In all her art-practices Katya uses “Here and now” approach. All of her works draw heavily on pastiche, weaving together words, colours, sounds, people, spaces and even time.

“I’ve become an artist because of my grandmother Nadezhda Borodina, have become a stage designer thanks to Fedor Pavlov-Andreevich, a jeweler thanks to Kristofor Bruni, a director – thanks to Alisa Prudnikova, a writer – thanks to Yury Gavrilenko, an architect of exhibitional spaces – thanks to Maria Baibakova, and a curator because of Vlad Troitsky. But in the end, it’s all one word, an artist”.

Screening of the play Jerzy Jarocki "Space" New Space Registration

The action takes place in a Polish mountain resort Zakopanem, where two young men go for vacation.

This play is about an eternal search of man’s place in the world and tireless creation of the own everyday reality.

Performance and round-table discussion Jerzy Jarzimbskoy, Grzegorz Jarzyna, Yury Muravitsky, Dariusz Klehovsky, Yury Chainikov "The Marriage" and "Playing Gombrowicz" New Space Registration

A round-table discussion aimed at analyzing heritage and a “game” method of Vitold Gombrowicz – an outstanding writer of the XX century. A game with its own biography, with a form of the performance, with masks…A game as a search of own identity, a game of being exceptional – it’s just a bit of game demonstration that can be found in his books. We can say that the game was a tool for self-affirmation, a mirror that reflected Gombrowicz’s personality and a way to escape from any form in theatre and in real life.
