“Moscomarchitectura held a creative competition, thanks to which a new living space was created near the Kursk railway station. We continue to build bridges between the artist and the city, the art and the viewer, and we hope that residents and visitors to the capital will also like the exhibition,” said Yuliana Knyazhevskaya, chairwoman of the Moscow Committee for Architecture and Urban Planning.
The first legal street art gallery “Netsten” is located along the railway tracks on the road from the Kursk railway station. The gallery is also open as an entry point to the Art Quarter, where the Winzavod and Artplay contemporary art centers operate.
The new exhibition has become a preview of the 4th Artmossphere Street Art Biennale, which opens on May 31 and enters the city for the first time. The theme of the biennale became the name of the new layer of the gallery: “Community: association – collectivity – utopia.” The concept was proposed by Andrey Parshikov, curator of the Biennale’s main project, and reveals important elements of adaptation to new conditions, thanks to which artists will try to understand and reorganize the reality that surrounds them.
