Andrey Parshikov, curator of the exhibition and tutor of the Open Studios:
"One of the main museum trends of recent years has been open storage, which has become the name and starting point for a new exhibition of Open Studios. The participants and the curator have been asked how to combine traditional artistic practices with time-oriented or performative ones in a space that in itself is a hybrid of the exhibition hall and workshop. The artists' workspace, like the jewelry box, will be located in a closed position in the centre of the studios and the viewers will be able to observe the artists from the second floor.
As far as possible, the workspace will be surrounded by a traditional exhibition of installations and paintings created during the artists' stay in the studios. But the main characters of the exhibition will be multi-series performances of artists (solo and collective) inside the working space. This is the first time that the event, as one of the main elements of modern museum activity, has been presented in Open Studios".
On August 15, open-call for participation in the new season of Open Studios of Winzavod will begin. Applications for participation will be submitted on the website of the project http://studios.winzavod.ru/
