Program: [Innovation]

INNOVATION 2013 nominees’ exhibition presents 25 projects selected by the Expert Committee out of 338 applications received for the competition this year. Above that, the display includes presentations of the laureates in two out-of-competition nominations – “For the Creative Contribution to the Development of Contemporary Art” (Vladislav Mamyshev-Monroe) and “For the Support of Russian Contemporary Art” (Shalva Breus and ArtChronika Cultural Foundation).

For the first time in the history of INNOVATION, the nominees’ exhibition is hosted by two venues simultaneously: the National Centre for Contemporary Arts (NCCA) and TSUM Art Foundation, Strategic Partner of the competition. The participation of TSUM Art Foundation, where works from two nominations will be on view, allows showing the nominees’ works in full scale, and bringing new audiences to the project.
