GJ Media: Interview

The 2nd Garage Triennial of Russian Contemporary Art, A Beautiful Night for All the People (GARAGE Museum, September 11, 2020 – February 28, 2021) was represented with works by artists recommended by the participants of the 1st Triennial (2017). Having delegated the ‘curatorial choice’ to the artists of the previous edition of the Triennial, the curators of A Beautiful Night for All the People Valentin Diaconov and Anastasia Mityushina rejected the expertise-based approach in favor of social action. 

The collection of Garage Museum of Contemporary Art consists of archive materials, rather than artworks. Sasha Obukhova, the curator of Garage Archive Collection, talks to Taisia Veremyova about the creation at Garage of an archive on contemporary Russian art, its role in the Museum, the difference between the price and value of archives, and their future in the digital age.
