It's not a typical excursion where a guid are monotonously talking about objects. Our format is a discussion and a friendly atmosphere.
The guide turns the walk into a dialogue, asks questions and shares art history knowledge.

No boring facts — just insider information and stories that will help you understand Russian contemporary art.

How the excursion goes:

— companies up to 5 people;
— visiting at least two galleries;
— discussion of the exhibition with an art historian and other participants;
— you share your opinion and express the most unusual ideas;
— you'll know about contemporary art situation in Russia (how much costs art objects, popularity of contmporary art and etc);
— visiting fansy street art places.

New experience:

— learn the current Russian contemporary art styles;
— meet some contemporary artists in their workshops;
— make your opinion about each exhibition we visit;
— learn about Russian galleries (some inside information);
— you will understand what is the meaning of contemporary art for Russian people;

Our goal is to form your own opinion about Russian contemporary art. We will show you many interesting exhibitions and help you understand the point.

Ask a question

I realized long ago that the gap between contemporary art and the audience is very large. People don't know how to watch contemporary art and ask questions to themselves and others.

When you look at the work of Aivazovsky, it is immediately clear that this is the sea, this is the element, it is beautiful and exciting. When you look at Malevich's works, it is not always clear what all these squares and cut canvases mean.

Therefore, I decided to make a tour that will teach people to understand contemporary art.
