Expanding Space. Fuori dal centro

Il programma Expanding Space è lo sviluppo, su larga scala, di un precedente, omonimo progetto della fondazione V-A-C . Nel 2015-2016, giovani artisti sono stati chiamati a studiare la possibilità’ di portare i propri lavori nell’ ambiente urbano intervenendo sulle impalcature, sulla marcatura stradale e nelle vetrine della metropolitana.

Nel 2019, il progetto V-A-C porta gli artisti fuori del centro geografico di Mosca: nei centri di cultura distrettuali, nei circoli ricreativi, nelle biblioteche, nei cinema e nei mercati per entrare in contatto con le comunità locali e creare insieme nuovi progetti culturali.

L'obiettivo principale di Expanding Space è quello di mettere in discussione l'idea contemporanea che l'arte debba esistere entro confine rigorosamente definiti e che solo I professionisti possano praticarla in musei e gallerie. In ciascuno dei sette programmi pittori, compositori, registi e artisti sviluppano un’attiva collaborazione con i residenti dei vari distretti di Mosca per diversi mesi.
