The Creative Union of Artists of Russia and the Foundation for the Development of Contemporary Art present the project "Actual Russia" - the annual collective exhibition of the main trends of contemporary art in the country.
Signed works and new works by contemporary artists from all over the country are united in a large-scale exhibition "Actual Russia", the theme of which this year is "adult choice".
This exhibition is for those who consider themselves adults. In the culture of the beginning of our century the adult responsible for himself and others is a fantastic construct. Social the naya group "adults" eludes the definition. But adults exist! And the totality only their decisions determine the configuration of the present and, more importantly, the future. Actual Russia - for adults.
Contemporary art is a non-children's affair. Painting, sculpture, multimedia works in the project "Actual Russia: adult choice" form a total quest in which everyone answers questions of the test for adulthood. Are you ready, the viewer, for a responsible decision?
It is considered that contemporary art asks questions, poses problems, is not afraid of sharp corners. Please: fake news and Russian hackers, post-memory and bioengineering, cultural identification and nomadic fluidity tell their stories in 7 halls of the museum at Delegatskaya. There are exactly as many of these stories as the "Actual Russia" exhibition has of viewers ready for a free ethical and aesthetic choice.
The project "Actual Russia: Adult Choice" is a cycle of endlessly divergent narratives of anticipatory art. The exhibition space becomes an oracle machine, in the labyrinth of which the viewer-partner selects fate. The correct answer everyone will know when he finds a way out of the maze.
