Garage Center for Contemporary Culture presents Exhibition #5: the first and largest survey of contemporary, self-taught art in Russia today.
Exhibition #5 is the culmination of a summer-long journey in 2012, during which The Museum of Everything created a mobile gallery to search for new artists in Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Saint Petersburg and Moscow. Participants were documented, photographed and filmed as part of the project, with local exhibitions held in all of the cities visited.
Designed and curated by The Museum of Everything, the installation in Gorky Park features new and re-discovered artists, elderly, amateur and homeless artists, and artists with learning and physical disabilities.
Exhibition #5 will also feature historic self-taught artists, including Pavel Leonov and Alexander Lobanov. T
Short films of The Museum of Everything journey are available to see at www.musevery.ru. An illustrated catalogue of the project is available at the exhibition and features written texts by participants in the project, as well as essays by Leonid Tischkov, Jean-Hubert Martin with a foreword by Dasha Zhukova.
