This is a new project of the experiment launched by the union of artists who had their studios at Lebyazhy Pereulok. Their first project, Russian Landscape, sought to identify the laws of Russian-ism in actual art. Believing it a success, they went over to Russian cosmos and the idea of Russian Cosmism, which expanded their individual boundaries through 3D artistic objects.

Can Russian-ism be speculative and provocative in the modern Russian art scene? Our answer is that Russians are not yet ready to go their individual ways and tend to avoid problems; it is a race without a goal or meaning. This idea of flight has engendered our next project, Races, about a conflict between the centripetal and centrifugal forces, about running in circles, the flight of time, and the things that are important to everyone irrespective of where they live. This is why the word “Russian” has been excluded from the name of this exhibition.
