The Museum of Contemporary Art "Garage" - 10 years. The anniversary is planned to be celebrated throughout the summer. Six new exhibitions have already been opened in the museum.
The tour is conducted by the main curator of the museum, the British Kate Fowl. Begins with the facts: for 10 years in "Garage" has passed almost one hundred and fifty exhibitions, including artists with big names: Takashi Murakami, Louise Bourgeois, Mark Rothko.
"When we organize an exhibition, it is important for us that the artist be interested in the world around, help understand it, touch upon issues related to society, culture, and politics. The most important thing is for the viewer to feel how the authors view the world in different ways, "Kate Fowl said.
The exhibition "Dear spectators" is the result of ten years of the museum's work. The artist Ekaterina Muromtseva decided to read the book of comments and wishes with comments from the visitors of the "Garage". It turned out that such books - more than fifty, and reviews - thousands. The artist chose the brightest, recorded audio, and the image of the viewer expressed in the installation.
"I wanted to show more likely that each visitor is an individuality, that it is a separate person, that this is not some kind of common mass, that everyone has his own character, and in different ways show these characters, they are already turning into works of art" - explained Ekaterina Muromtseva.
This musical instrument is the only one in the world. Together with a large team he was invented by Tarek Atuy, an artist of Lebanese origin, experimenting with installations and music. The project "Unlimited Rumor" is a social one. The author wanted to create tools that would be able to play and hard of hearing.
"You just need to do it, a special drawing produces a certain sound. The idea is that when you touch a tree, you feel its texture, you get the feeling that you hear a sound, "Tarek Atuy explained.
Not without football. To the World Cup German artist Jürgen Teller came up with a special project "Mandrake on the couch." The conceptual photographer decided to shoot as his family watches a football match. And then he poured himself a beer for the fullness of emotions.
"Life is what interests me, and it actually includes everything, all emotions: sadness, happiness, love," Jürgen Teller shared.
In the jubilee year, "Garage" decided on one more experiment. The laboratory will work in the museum, where it will be shown how modern art is born.
