Here 
and Now

moscow
The annual contemporary art review ‘Here and Now' is being held for the third time in a row outside the walls of museums and galleries. Works by the participants are placed on squares and streets, harmoniously integrating into the existing urban landscape and bringing contemporary art closer to residents of the city. New points of attraction arise on the artistic map of Moscow.
This year the project expands not only its geography, but also its artistic composition: special attention is paid to the work of regional authors who find new angles of perception for the Moscow landscapes already familiar to us. The programme of support for young art is also ongoing: as part of the festival, art objects by Moscow art college graduates appear on the streets of the capital.

Popularisation of contemporary art as an integral part of the urban landscape.
1
Stimulation of the cultural and social dynamics of public urban spaces; the involvement of city residents in the study of history and Russian culture.
2
Decentralisation and activation of the cultural map of districts; the creation of new, iconic city sights.
3
Support and encouragement for development of the regional art scene.

‘Here and Now' is the story of how art changes not only central neighbourhoods, but also wholly typical residential developments. The works by contemporary artists transform familiar squares and streets: what seemed ordinary becomes original and vibrant, in constant dialogue with the architectural appearance of the capital.
