Open the doors to artists' studios and local culture spaces with Kate
St. Petersburg is a living organism with a rich cultural life in its most diverse manifestations. And it's not only about magnificent architecture, grandiosity and great density of museums, park ensembles and monuments – this city is also about people who live and create art here and now.
Meet your activity leader: Kate
Hi everyone! I am an artist, a curator and an art critic from St. Petersburg.
All of my life is dedicated to art: I have graduated from an art school in the class of printed graphics, I am seriously engaged in theatre, and have a degree in Art History from the Academy of Fine Arts in Saint-Petersburg, the School of Art Involved by the group 'What is to be done?".
As an artist I do painting, drawing, sculpture and installations. As curator I have experience in organization of collective exhibitions in several galleries and open public spaces. I also like traveling and meeting new people.
One of my current goals is to promote contemporary art of St. Petersburg and its artists.

What to expect
I want to share with you some insider information about the current state of art of the cultural capital of Russia, and also provide the experience of informally communicating with outstanding masters and establishing multicultural ties with the creative intellectuals.

Our walk will start from the unique place of the art center Pushkinskaya 10. In the 90s there was one of the largest squats where independent artists, musicians and other figures of underground culture settled. Now it is a unique confederation of art galleries, concert halls, clubs, with a recording studio, a theatre, and creative workshops of famous artists and musicians. In the art center, there is the only museum of nonconformist art in Russia that unites a unique collection of "unofficial" art of the second half of the 20th century and contemporary Russian art.

Then we will go to the Borey gallery, located in the cellar on Liteiny Prospekt, which is a grassroots initiative with more than 10 stories, now there is a gallery with several exhibition spaces, an art cafe and a shop with books, paintings, sculptures and drawings.

Toward the end of our walk, we will climb to the attic - a unique gallery "Pork Snout" with workshops of an extravaganza of artists and musicians "KOLHUI - witchcraft artists", also known as a group of NOM. They are known for their scandalous concerts, ambiguous films and bright satirical pictures. Here you can appreciate the scope and revelry of the Russian soul, the charm of the national color.

Our trip can also include visits to small, private spaces and workshops located in this area where you can see and maybe even buy the work of talented young artists.
