Following its successful re-launch in 2014, Cosmoscow, Russia’s only international contemporary art fair, established its position as the leading platform for building the country’s contemporary art market, bringing together international and Russian collectors, galleries, artists and art professionals. Confirming its place in the international art fair calendar, Cosmoscow will again connect Russia’s contemporary art scene and the international arts community, showcasing artists previously unseen on the Russian market, alongside established and emerging artists from the region.
Led by Founding Director Margarita Pushkina, and Co-Director Sandra Nedvetskaia, Cosmoscow’s 2015 edition will host 34 galleries.
International exhibitors will present alongside galleries from Russia and surrounding countries, all of whom have been selected for their high quality programming and contemporary focus. Cosmoscow is proud to be supported by a strong advisory board consisting of major international art world figures such as Dilyara Allakhverdova, Antoine Arnault and Natalia Vodianova, Olga Vashchilina, Teresa Mavica and Vasili Tsereteli. Members of the Cosmoscow expert committee include Elena Selina, Curator at XL Gallery and XL Projects, and Fernando Frances, Director and Partner of Galería Javier López & Fer Frances.
This year Cosmoscow expects to welcome approximately 15,000 visitors to historic venue of Gostiny Dvor.
