Art Catch is an online gallery and much more. It’s a cultural hub, which serves as a publishing platform, curatorial assistant, contact and mediation center related to Russian contemporary art scene. We aim at cooperating with passionate collectors, young and experienced curators, students, scholars and journalists whose personal and professional interests lie in the field of international art.

Our activity bases on encouragement of tradition of art collecting, filling in gaps in knowledge about contemporary art scene in Russia, that are still present in global critical art discourse, and making artworks of our artists more accessible for cultural institutions and independent professionals. We mainly represent artists who have already participated in significant art events and happenings in their homeland and made their mark in contemporary history of artistic practice.

Sculpture to the International Day of Human Space Flight

April 12 is the International Day of Human Space Flight celebrating the first human space flight, carried out by Yuri Gagarin in 1962. The Mediacenter of Zaryadye park (Moscow) has initiated a large-scale group art project COS20MOS21 which rethinks the themes of the infinity of the Universe, galactic flights and human life beyond the Earth. The major place takes the sculpture by Valentin Korzhov “Observer of Immense Space”. It features the face of Gagarin as a beholder of two conditions: earthly and cosmic, personal and historical. This three-meter art object reflects on the deep philosophical roots of Russian Cosmism, the spiritual origins of the first human space flight and the transcendent act of overcoming the metaphysical borders.
