PROJECT2017

I am delighted to introduce PROJECT 2017, the first edition of a new series of curated art fairs showing at the gallery offering a platform for exceptionally talented contemporary artists to showcase their work and present it directly to the public.

PROJECT2017 will open its doors on 25th May 2017 at my gallery, and for ten days it will provide a unique opportunity for visitors to meet the artists and buy artworks directly from their creators. We are also hosting a public vote competition, that will award award one artist the opportunity to showcase their work in a solo exhibition at Gallery Elena Shchukina in 2017-2018. 

The twelve artists we have selected for PROJECT 2017 use varied techniques and materials, and their visions on art are diverse. Yet, they are all inspired by two powerful themes: change and transformation.

From the sublimation of concrete form into pure thought, to the unfolding of personal relationships and memories, all the works exhibited carry within them the promise of creativity and the potential for something new.

With PROJECT 2017, I wanted to step beyond the traditional gallery model. We are bringing the artists closer to their audiences in an intimate environment that will encourage creative thought and expression. 

I hope you will enjoy the PROJECT2017 experience with us this year!
