In this project the Ural region is considered as a zone of ecological risk, natural anomalies and space and resources development, which forms special character if individuality.

The exhibition became an event in cultural life of the city. Common features of social life and art practice became evident.

Sergey Puhachev, the manager of the center of contemporary art commented: “The exhibition “Development Zone” was very important for Novgorodskii center of contemporary art. The goal of the project was introduction the art of other region to audience in our city. We never show before the history of avant-garde processes. Velikii Novgorod- the city with great history, but this project shows that we have another history, which we cannot find in books, which is not connected with names of politicians and generals, and we don’t know which one is more important. Creative processes in cities of northwest and Ural have also significant difference. Here artists trespass the borders of fine art seldom, “culture of laugh” is not so developed, we have less tries of aestheticization of non-aesthetic etc. The exhibition “Development Zone” became an important experience and a unique adventure for audience and artist in Nizhnii Novgorod.”

You can visit the exhibition from 6 May till 3 September 2017 every day from 11 am. to 8 pm.
