Art.Who.Art: A Festival of Young Artists

A photo from the third Art.Who.Art exhibition held in Moscow in April.

If you are into cutting-edge art, or if you are into cutting-edge music, or if you just like hanging out with young cutting-edge artists and their entourages, this weekend you're in luck. The fourth Art.Who.Art exhibition starts Friday night and goes on until Sunday with exhibitions of paintings, photography, installations and performances by 50 up-and-coming artists.

The idea of the exhibition is to provide artistic unknowns with a venue that attracts art-lovers, buyers, journalists and galleries. To sweeten the deal, there will be a rich program of music, film, and general arty relaxation over food and drinks.

The festival begins on Friday at 7 p.m. and kicks off with concerts by Typemachine, Hospital and Mana Island. An after-party with DJs from radio Megapolis FM will play from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. Saturday is a day of public talks and discussions about art, starting at 2 p.m. Art performances will be on display from 7 to 10 p.m., and then the night air will be filled with the sounds of another Megapolis FM DJ set.  On Sunday, an open-air theater will show video art non-stop from 2 to 7:30 pm.

The event will be capped by an awards ceremony on Sunday at 8 p.m. followed by more live music. All the exhibition spaces will be open from noon to 9 p.m.

Art.World.Art. Bankside. 17 Nastavnichesky pereulok. Metro Kurskaya. artwhoart.ru. One-day ticket — 300 rubles ($4.50), three-day ticket — 500 rubles ($7.50).

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
