Solyanka is one of the most known Moscow’s new cultural institutions focused on art that moves: performance, artists’ films, animation and kinetic sculpture. We reach out to the brightest audience Moscow has to offer using the language of the most exciting international art from Marina Abramovic, Vito Acconci, Gelitin and Valie Export in performance, Francis Alÿs, Sigalit Landau, and AES+F in video, Andrey Tarkovsky, Sergey Paradzhanov and Tonino Guerra in film to Yuri Norshtein, Hayao Miyazaki and Bill Plympton in animation. Solyanka’s curatorial team managed to put together a number of important international solo and group shows including works by Tehching Hsieh, Jeremy Deller, Sam Taylor-Wood, Slater Bradley, and Vik Muniz. The gallery runs an intense educational program and the only school dedicated to performance art in Russia along with regular workshops for various audiences. For the last several years Solyanka has been hosting a series of talks by world’s leading museum directors and iconic curators on their practice and relationship between the museum and the public.
