Motives of the season:
Exploratory art and the embodiment of knowledge in a situation of hybridization of artistic strategies.
Lera Kononchuk, the mentor of the ninth season of the Open Studios of the Winzavod, will focus with the residents on working with different artistic methodologies. Among the guest speakers, in addition to active participants in the artistic environment, are curators, artists and theorists who practice an interdisciplinary approach and question the boundaries of artistic expression and humanitarian research.
The open studios of Winzavod are part of the New Names strategic direction, aimed at professional support and development of artists.
"The open studios of Winzavod are a space for growth for emerging artists and a springboard for developing a career in art. Studios reduce many distances — between the artist and the viewer, between the artist and gallery owners, between the artist and art critics, and also between the artist and his professional goals and aspirations. Artists find like-minded people, share and recharge with new ideas, meanings, join the professional community — this is an invaluable experience", —
Sofya Trotsenko, founder of the CCA Winzavod, emphasizes.
