Our artists

One of our artists, Artem Mirolevich, has just come back from a fabulous art residency in France, Soleil de L’est.
“I can hardly believe my luck as I was the only person occupying the villa for the first week. It was also good to have another artist – Marina and my man from Amsterdam Frederik Knote who came to visit and spent time later on. 3 weeks flew by but I got a lot of work done and also got to see the beautiful Loire Valley with all its castles and beautiful landscapes”, says Artem upon his return.

Let me introduce myself

My name is Yuliya Lanina and I will be writing this blog. Please let me first introduce myself. I am one of the artists participating in the Russian Pavilion. Originally from Moscow, Russia I lived in US  since 1990, mostly in New York City. Two years ago I relocated to Austin, TX. My work ranges from paintings and mechanical sculptures to animations and video.  I am particularly interested in turning the traditional medium of painting into a multi-dimensional and interactive experience for the viewer.

I believe that working with others is at the heart of creative process. I often collaborate with professionals in other fields, creating multidisciplinary works that can be accessible to a broad population. Currently I am collaborating with composer, Yevgeniy Sharlat, and technical developer, Theodore Johnson, on creating a series of wind-up music boxes  completed  with painted moving figures and well as music clockwork that plays a custom-composed melody to each piece. You will see the example of a music box at the Russian Pavilion exhibition.

Armory Art Pavilion


НЬЮ-ЙОРК — В Нью-Йорке прошло ежегодное Armory show («Арсенальная выставка»), одна из крупнейших международных выставок современного искусства, которая в этом году отметила свой 100-летний юбилей.

В последние годы параллельно с Armory проходят и другие независимые арт-ярмарки, где свои работы представляют менее известные в США художники. В этом году любители искусства и коллекционеры, съехавшиеся в Нью-Йорк ради многочисленных вернисажей, получили возможность познакомиться и с современным русским искусством.
