The Vaults Centre for Artistic Production is designed to support the art ecosystem of Russia's capital by providing artists working in different disciplines with access to state-of-the-art technology to help them realise their projects. The activities of the Vaults are conceived as running in parallel with, but not directly connected to, the main GES-2 art programme. The Vaults incorporate a number of high-tech workshops open to specialists working in a wide variety of fields, as well as to GES-2 resident artists. Here you can experiment with a wealth of materials – wood, metal, plastic, ceramics and textiles; create projects in photo, audio and video studios; work in a 3D printing laboratory, a printmaking studio and a finishing workshop; use a library of materials; and interact with other participants in the coworking space.
The Vaults provide opportunities to use professional equipment, supported by a team of technical specialists. All our workshops have a variety of tools and materials suitable for traditional techniques and digital production. They include Russia's first TC2 digital jacquard loom, a KUKA robotic arm, which allows one to combine milling and 3D printing, a Colenta processor for large-format photo printing (up to 2 metres in width) and an A2 Riso duplicator.
