Events at Garage Museum in 2015

29 December 2015

On 23 December 2015, art critic and culture expert Irina Kulik gave the closing lecture to her legendary series of talks, “Asymmetrical Similarities”, in the Educational Centre at the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art. The event concluded a joint programme of activities between the Museum and the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation in 2015.

Each “Asymmetrical Similarities” lecture is a separate virtual, curator project, having two artists collide on the same stage, unsure what they will have in common. The main thing is that the confrontation should open up new dimensions in the work of the artists discussed. This season “Asymmetrical Similarities” brought together Andy Goldsworthy and Banksy, David Hockney and Gerhard Richter, Panamarenko and Tomas Saraceno, George Grosz and Martin Kippenberger, and other well-known individuals of the 20th century.

Also in 2015, there were several series of lectures called “Culture Languages”, “The Family Tree of Russian Contemporary Art”, “Architecture of the 20th century”, “Research as Suture: Film archives and Torn Stories”, Terry Smith’s lecture “The Contexts of Curating” and others were held. All of this was made possible with the support of the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation.

Being a patron of the educational programme at the Garage Museum, the Foundation supported the organization and running of significant events at the Museum, such as the 4th International Conference, “A Long, Happy Life: Building and Comprehending the Soviet City: 1956 to Now”, the video exhibition “Project 35: The Last Act”, as well as meetings and talks with Russian and foreign artists, philosophers and scientists.

One of the most important events in 2015 was the involvement of the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation in implementing an inclusive programme at the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art. This collaboration has brought about the following achievements:

In total, thanks to the joint efforts of the Museum and the Foundation, in 2015 more than 250 educational events were held, which were attended by about 30,000 people, including 1,000 people with different forms of disabilities.
