"Youth" project by

Партнер Cosmoscow фотобренд ЗЕНИТ совместно с кураторами Борисом Бернаскони и Сашей Мадемуазель по случаю открытия первого магазина в ГУМе устремляет взгляд в будущее и показывает серию работ фотографа Максима Купрещенкова — исследование состояния, возникающего во время общения с моделью. Всегда интересно, как фотографу удается увидеть человека через объектив, но не менее любопытно то, что видит модель и как это отражается на итоговых картинках: каждый раз это небольшое открытие, которое помогает автору лучше понять себя. В серии собраны портреты девушек, которые были сделаны в период летних месяцев с 2020-2022 год: как друзья, так и до того незнакомые автору героини.

Hutton Metaverse

Hutton, a longtime Cosmoscow partner, keeps on developing the idea of new meditative spaces by merging architecture, design, and art. This season, it presents its own world — the Hutton Metaverse.

The interiors of Hutton Metaverse feature functional architectural forms, designed in strict minimalism in the spirit of ergonomic space stations. The project was based on a real Hutton object, the LUNAR space complex (Moscow), created for people who are ready to bring the future closer.

Gallery + Museum: interaction and partnership strategies

Today's art industry is built on the successful cooperation of the commercial and non-commercial sectors. The galleries provide primary expertise by identifying promising young artists, developing their careers, selling works of art, and providing opportunities for the artists to earn money. The museums carry out the most important, final examination in the art market: if an artist ends up in museum collections, it means that his/her value is recognized by an independent museum community and will become part of the cultural and state heritage; his/her price and status are confirmed; and the value of private collections, where his/her works are already presented, is growing. As part of the discussion, we will talk about what formats of cooperation and interaction exist today between galleries and museums. What mechanisms for supplementing museum collections are working in Russia today and what difficulties do galleries and museums face on the way to building a partnership.
