“Community: partnership - collectivity - utopia”: Moscow Architecture Committee and CCA Winzavod open the new season of NOWALLS (NETSTEN).

The new exhibition of the street gallery NOWALLS became a teaser for the IV Street Art Biennale ARTMOSSPHERE.

Exhibition address: Kurskaya metro station (Chkalovskaya), a wall along the railway tracks between the Kurskaya station and the tunnel on Verkhnyaya Syromyatnicheskaya Street.

The opening ceremony of the NOWALLS exhibition was attended by the Chairman of the Committee on Architecture and Urban Planning of the City of Moscow Yuliana Knyazhevskaya, the Chief Architect of Moscow Sergei Kuznetsov, the founder of the Winzavod Center for Contemporary Art Sofia Trotsenko, the director of the ARTMOSSPHERE biennale Sabina Chagina, and the artists of the project.

The NOWALLS gallery is open as an entry point to the Art Quarter, where two of the largest creative clusters operate - the Winzavod Center for Contemporary Art and Artplay. In 2023, the street gallery NOWALLS became part of the street biennale Artmossphere, the theme of which became the name for the gallery’s new layer - “Community: partnership - collectivity - utopia”

About the works:

Ashesteen (Kirill Ashastin)/Untitled

According to the artist, all the figures involved here are like some kind of creative units. A team with different characters, ideologies, ideas, but with the same desire to interact in the overall art development. “Art should fill the city, it is part of the urban space structure,” says Kirill. — Visual art should be accessible to everyone. If it is also of high quality, it will create a dialogue with the viewer, to whom it will at least give energy, and at a maximum will give understanding and attraction to the feeling of beauty.”


In his work, the artist shows the power of hope and how it dispels fear and darkness around a person. “The idea of the work is that I don’t want people to lose the soul and light within themselves,” says the artist. “The purpose of street art is to broaden your horizons, to rejoice, criticize, grumble, laugh, think, but not pass by.”


The work Utopia reveals the theme of computer games in the arcade genre, as the first step towards the transition of humanity fr om the real world to the virtual (utopian) world. Initially, 8-bit arcade games appeared in arcade clubs in the late 1970s, and it can be considered that it was from them that the mass fascination with the virtual reality worlds began among a wide audience.

Poets, writers, artists, politicians, and scientists laid down a unique cultural code in Russian society. Their monuments stand in Moscow. In fact, each of us has a bright part of these people. Sometimes unconsciously, through the synthesis of their achievements and our creative search, we create something new and move forward. “I did this work about the city. About the feelings that events, memories, situations evoke in me,” says the artist. “It’s important for me not to slip into illustrations wh ere there are exact interpretations, but rather to convey this feeling, which is sometimes elusive. If the viewer experiences it with me, then I consider this work successful. In the chaos of life, art becomes a tuning fork for many. It gives rise to new emotions and makes a person take his mind off thoughts about himself. It’s important that art appears in the city; it creates new points of attraction and unites people.”

Evgeny Malyshev (JöN)/"Birth and Growing Up"

The artist’s work shows the moment of transition fr om one environment to another. Having learned to swim, now you need to learn how to fly. According to the author, today events are developing rapidly, it is necessary to constantly adapt to new conditions and, of course, we need to do this together, in a team of like-minded people. “I would like people, looking at the work, to hope for a bright future, to remember their lives, wh ere it all began, to think about the time they lived and their place in the world,” says the artist.


“This work is about the relationship between society and nature,” says the author. “The setting is a blooming garden in which everyone can hide and be alone with themselves.”
