COSMOSCOW is the first and only contemporary art fair in Russia and the CIS, which aims to create dialogue between Russian and international contemporary artists in one of Moscow’s best known cultural venues.
The art fair has been established in response to today's art scene in Moscow, and the growing interest in the capital as a destination for contemporary artists, collectors and art-lovers alike.
Invited exhibitors and selected partner organisations will present works from both emerging and established artists. An extensive parallel programme will encompass local and international institutions and curators, non-profit projects and talks. Cosmoscow will create synergies with the vibrancy of the emerging contemporary art scene in Moscow, as well as draw on the city’s great cultural history.
Cosmoscow was the brainchild of collector and patron, Margarita Pushkina, with its first edition in 2010. Having joined forces with former Head of Christie's Russia and CIS, Sandra Nedvetskaia, the fair sees its relaunch this September, in an important year for contemporary art in Russia.
