Open studios are expanding the program: in addition to the traditional areas "Workshops" and "Pop-up" there will be a project "Open studios +". This is an experimental format that will allow artists to attend lectures, conduct master classes, participate in special events and vernissages, and create works conceived as part of the project in the space of the workshops.
Sofia Trotsenko, the founder of the Centre for Contemporary Art at Winzavod, talks about the concept of the fifth season:
"This year at the open call we received a lot of good applications. But since the number of seats in the program is limited, not all artists were able to enter the main composition of the Open Studios. So we decided to try to expand the project in an experimental format and allow more artists to become part of it. As a result, 14 artists got a place in the project. Under the circumstances, of course, this is a challenge, but we hope that it will fully justify itself, and soon we will see the results of this great work".
According to Andrey Parshikov, tutor of Open Studios, this season there will be even more acquaintances with artists, informal talks with representatives of professional environment, presentations, visits to exhibitions and vernissages, shows and tracking the progress of works created in Open Studios, and of course, art.
