Not for sale

Curator: Alexandra Kiseleva.
A reflection on the role of object in modern art and on the connection between an object, its meaning and value created within the exhibition space. Not for sale initiates a situation when the visitor is herself responsible for making this connection. Apart from numbers exhibits have no labels showing their name or author. Numbers allude to a bunch of brochures piled in the hall, the contents of which will become accessible only during selected tours. Visitors are not allowed to touch or read these «handouts» on their own, whereas all other objects can be touched and taken free of charge. At the same time the visitor can’t get any benefit from the object since she signs an agreement confirming that the object is free and not intended for commercial use. We will be constantly recording the exhibition gradually uploading the videos.
Participants: Emma Bayer, Ivan Banankin, Polina Egorushkina, Snezhana Zagalskaya, Ekaterina Igoshina, Ivan Karmanov, Yuliya Kirilcheva, Alexandra Kiseleva, Anna Kondratyeva, Ikuru Kuwajima, Valentina Makarova, Olga Mashinets, Valeria Mordashova, Ekaterina Ost, Ivan Pushkin, Maria Sarkisyants, Maxim Tatarintsev, Daria Tihomirova, Denis Uranov, Kristina Zian, Maria Chertkova, Daria Serenko
