ACI Art Forum

The 10th edition of Cosmoscow International Contemporary Art Fair, together with the Agency for Creative Industries of the City of Moscow, presents the Business Program, which will be held during the days of the fair in Gostiny Dvor on September 14—17.

This year, the speakers of the program will discuss the professional standards and trends that have developed in the art industry in recent years: how art has become closer to business, why large companies support cultural institutions, and why we see the work of contemporary artists in public spaces more and more often.

12:30 p.m. - 2 p.m.

Art in public spaces: coordination and placemenе

Public art is an important tool for the development of territories; it brings diversity to the urban environment, attracts tourists, and creates new points of attraction for citizens and businesses. At the same time, those who at least once in their lives tried to implement their project on the streets of the capital (from curators to developers) note that they encountered difficulties in coordinating and placing art objects or murals. Representatives of various departments of the city will talk about how the approval process works and what to do in order to simplify it and make it comfortable for all parties.
