The NEMOSKVA Project
Stanislavsky Electrotheatre jointly with the State Center for Contemporary Art
The NEMOSKVA project was designed as a large-scale initiative to support contemporary culture in the Russian regions. The aim of the project is to develop horizontal links between regional art scenes, promote artists and curators, further the study of the current situation on the ground through professional dialogue, and create new opportunities for international cooperation.
The mobile Big Country - Big Ideas exhibit presents the best ideas of unsold projects of regional artists to the general public.
It reveals the uniqueness and versatility of regional art, and demonstrates the potential of the artistic process in Russian cities. The ideas of unrealized projects are presented in the form of models, drafts, and sketches made in traditional media as well as with digital technologies.
Big Country - Big Ideas visited 11 cities in Russia in August and September 2018 within the framework of the Mobile International Symposium on the NEMOSKVA Trans-Siberian Highway. Taking part in the symposium were some 60 leading curators at important cultural institutions from around the world (from the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris to the Reditory Museum of Contemporary Art in Guangzhou), as well as experts from the National Center for Contemporary Art in ROSIZO and contemporary culture experts from 20 Russian cities.
