The 10th Cosmoscow International Contemporary Art Fair supported by Official Partner Ruinart and Automobile Partner Audi Russia, will take place at Gostiny Dvor on September 15–17, 2022. Preview for collectors and art professionals will take place on September 14.
Cosmoscow Founding Director:
“Since the very first edition in 2010, we have worked diligently and consistently to make the fair a backbone project for the Russian art market and an important tool for the development of the creative economy, as well as help build intercultural dialogue. And today, it is safe to say that Cosmoscow serves as a center of attraction for contemporary art lovers from all over the world. And next year, the 10th anniversary edition of Cosmoscow is promising to be unforgettable.”
The fair keeps on strengthening its international presence by attracting the brightest professionals of the art market. The geography of participants is expanding every year; Cosmoscow Talks welcomes museum directors, collectors and curators who are immersed in an international context.
One of the main principles of the fair for maintaining a high level of the composition of the participating galleries is professional selection. And the anniversary edition will be marked by the fact that the Cosmoscow international expert council, which includes Olga Temnikova (Temnikova & Kasela), Elena Selina (XL Gallery), Javier Perez and Nick Koenigsknecht (Peres Projects), will be joined by Emanuel Layr, whose Layr gallery is committed to collaboration between artists of different generations and cultural heritage. The Committee will be selecting the galleries that will participate in Cosmoscow anniversary edition.
The online version of the fair will be held for the third time. Following the established world practice, Cosmoscow Online will have an expanded list of participants, extended dates compared to the fair in Gostiny Dvor and will again be held on the TEO by Cosmoscow platform, the largest marketplace of contemporary art in Russia.
Simultaneously with Cosmoscow, from 14 to 18 September, the Museum of Moscow (2, Zubovsky Boulevard) will host the blazar satellite fair welcoming not only galleries but also emerging artists at the beginning of their careers working independently, as well as different contemporary art initiatives and educational institutions.
