STUDENTS AT BIENALLE OF STREET ART
The exhibitions of contemporary art help stay in touch with current trends, expand one’s knowledge, and gain inspiration for creating one’s own art projects. That is why this semester our students from the Design College attend one of the most significant cultural events in Moscow.
Last week they were at the third biennale of street art called ‘Artmossphere’. It took place at Winzavod, the Centre of Contemporary Art.
The main project’s theme is ‘Offline’. Its authors show the influence of digital technologies on society.
The students saw a unique research ‘Street Art in Russia from 1980s to 2010s’ project. Its managers were Dmitry Aske, an artist, and Anton Polskiy, a teacher in the RSUH. The main task of the exposition was to present the history of Russian street art and graffiti.
Our students always appreciate the events that allow exploring their knowledge in contemporary art. When they returned from Winzavod, we had an interview.
Natalia Vladimirova, second-year student, Faculty of Design:
‘I fell in love with the exposition. Street art is amazing, it’s essential for an artist. Being an important school of art that requires creativity, street art helps us change our lives.’
Nelly Mkhitaryan, second-year student, Faculty of Design:
‘I’ve always wanted to attend Winzavod. I was impressed by some exhibits and their history. It’s my first visit there, but I’m sure that it’s not the last one.’
Lana Burdina, second-year student, Faculty of Design:
‘The exposition provided many unordinary exhibits that greatly impressed me. I appreciate contemporary art because it makes us see a global meaning in something weird or even dull. Such events help broaden one’s knowledge and arouse inspiration.’
