The description of Here and Now!
The exhibition of contemporary art of Moscow "Here and Now!" runs from August 1 until August 20 in the Central Manezh. Art is transforming from the familiar museum object into a means of communication, becoming a new language. The purpose of the exhibition is to reflect how this language is used in related forms of contemporary art and in classical cultural practices. The exposition gathered more than 50 brightest and most relevant artworks of the recent years. The technique of each work combines several creative approaches and genres: theatre, cinema, installations, new media, sound and video art, performances and education. The exhibition presents multimedia and interactive objects, projects of emerging artists and site-specific works created in the city. On the ground floor of Manege there is an event program of the exhibition — during the course of almost three weeks there will be lectures, performances, theatre performances, film screenings, master classes and music improvisations.
