PLACE OF ART— EVENTS
"Place of Art" team conducts cultural and educational conferences, seminars, and workshops, that are followed by the periodical publication of the "Place of Art" journal.
Together with the Doctorate School of Art and Design in Higher School of Economics, we organize research seminars and scholar conferences during which our participants and invited speakers prepare reports and public talks on contemporary problematics of art, curating and its strategies
As an artist and teacher-researcher, Marie Preston sees her work as artistic research and ethnographic exploration, resulting in works that document experiences with those she meets. Her artistic process, based on the interaction of the knowledge and know-how of all involved, aims to create shared spaces. The resulting works – photographs, sculptures, performances, and films – range from the presentation of experiences through collective actions.
Natacha Nisic is an artist and filmmaker. She weaves links between history, representation and memory and its implications in the political, social and cultural fields. She explores the invisible relationship between images, words, interpretation, symbol and ritual. Her work questions the nature of the image through different media: Super 8, 16MM, video, photography and drawing. She created The Crown Letter (2020), an international platform of women artists, in response to the Coronavirus crisis.

Conference "Exhibition as a means of analysis of contemporaneity. Ethics and politics of exhibitions"
How can we make exhibitions nowadays and how can we analyze it? Firstly, we strive to examine different methods of exhibition analysis. Secondly, it is essential to address a variety of curatorial practices and see how the optics of every exhibition is created.
Due to the current circumstances, we decided to organize part of the “Place of Art” panel in the online format. We will begin with the publication of video presentations by section participants during June. After the series of presentations, we are planning to arrange a round table with the speakers, “Place of Art” team, and a wide audience.
