Moscow’s Garage Museum to Launch the First Russian Art Triennial in 2017

Moscow’s Garage Museum, Russia’s first contemporary art museum, has announced that it is organizing the first triennial dedicated to Russian art. Kicking off on March 10, 2017, at the institution, the triennial will showcase work by Russian artists created over the past five years.

Garage’s chief curator Kate Fowle will lead the triennial team, which consists of fellow museum curators Katya Inozemtseva, Snejana Krasteva, Andrey Misiano, and Sasha Obukhova. Participating artists will represent nine regions in Russia: the Central, South, North West, Far East, Siberia, Urals, Volga, North Caucasus, and Crimea Federal Districts.

The announcement was made on the first anniversary of the opening of the Koolhass-designed Garage Museum and during the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. The museum said, “Just as the revolution encouraged Russia’s first avant-garde, Garage hopes to spur the next.”
