Exhibition in a coachhouse 

After a thorough renovation, the “Ruin” exhibition space at the Shchusev Museum of Architecture is now officially open. The 200-year-old walls of the maintenance building that was once a coachhouse for the wealthy Talyzin family have been left almost untouched, with new materials used only when absolutely necessary. Last week an exhibit of the finalists of the Innovation art award opened at Ruin.

Ostorozhno, Slon! 

Indian fast food in a mall 

Ostorozhno, Slon! (Look Out, Elephant!) is the latest addition to the food court on the top floor of the Tsvetnoi shopping mall. Slon’s chef, Chauhan Singh, has come directly from Delhi to work here. A traditional “thali” lunch set costs just 300 rubles ($5.30) and includes lentil dhal soup, the yogurt-based dish raita and either chicken tikka masala or chicken in butter sauce. There’s a choice of lassi – mango or banana (150 rubles).
