Within the framework of the project, seven exhibitions and seven projects of short format were presented: film screenings, lectures, performances, play and printobeman. 

The project is implemented in the premises of CCA Winzavod in three stages - fr om November 25, 2022 to March 8, 2023. The projects presented a map of contemporary initiatives of curators and creative communities. 

About Exhibition Projects

The installation «Don’t Keep Me» is dedicated to the idea of false poles. In the exhibition - familiar to the viewer household items and redi-meids with no defined functional purpose.

Curators: Christina Pashkova and Kostya Sickp. 

The multimedia project «The Reduced Dimension» documents the reality and world-feeling of the inhabitants of the village of Tigrovogo in the Primorsky Territory in the Far East. The exhibition consists of photographs of houses and villagers, surrounding landscapes and correspondence in group chat rooms, wh ere people share their stories, joys and stories about what concerns them.  
Curator: Ekaterina Sedykh.
Artist: Elena Nikitina.

«Coordinates» - site-specific project of artistic on the whole territory of CCA Winzavod.

The installation of «Metasequoia Foxy» is devoted to the theme of the sixth extinction of species on the planet against the background of human activity.

Curator: Yevgeny Belyakov (self-organization «Tails on»).

The exhibition «Layers of Dunbar» offered viewers to reflect on social relations and to explore the model of their relations with people. How many people do you have around you and how do you build relationships? What changes are happening with the arrival of new and the disappearance of old social bonds? What quality do your social bonds have? 
Curator: Nelly Galias.

«Okay, I’ll think about it» is a group exhibition representing the intention to participate in it. The project is based on the anonymous Open call with the stated theme of «unsolicited letters of large institutions»: many artists are familiar with the state of waiting for an answer, which turns into humility and then into the illusion that «it is normal». Polysemia single-syllable «thank/OK/I’ll think».
Curator: Tina Shibalova.
