"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.

The Jewish Museum and the Tolerance Center present the discussion "Outsider Art and Galleries: Integration of "special" artists into the art market" within the framework of the Cosmoscow fair

With the support of the Jewish Museum and the Tolerance Center. The broad term "outsider art" today encompasses the work of neurodivergent artists, people with exclusionary experiences, and authors without professional experience. The discussion of experts, curators and philanthropists is devoted to the current state of outsider art in the art market, the problem of definitions and official recognition of the work of artists who do not have the support of the professional community. Participants will answer the questions: is outsider art marginal art today? How does this art get into institutions and why are there separate platforms for artists with developmental disabilities? The discussion can draw attention to the problem of outsider art, its position on the contemporary art scene and draw the attention of a wide audience to this phenomenon.

Discussion “X Hour of Russian Gloss: The Last Battle for Print”

In the context of the curtailment of the activities of most Western fashion and jewelry brands in the Russian market, which means the fall of the advertising market; rising prices for paper, dyes, other printing services; as well as the revocation of licenses to publish international publications in the country, it would seem that continuing to make a print is pure altruism or suicide. We understand why it is so important to preserve the magazine fashion culture.
