Workshop is open only for the School for Young Artists participants
Nizhny Novgorod-based artist Artem Filatov will discuss the ways an artist examines an urban space with the means of psychogeography, strolling and art in the public space. He will speak about his art experience, share international context, and emphasise on practice: from strolling around, collecting impressions to developing art projects.
Artem Filatov is an artist and curator. Author of objects, installations and curatorial projects based on interaction with cultural landscape and history of the city of Nizhny Novgorod, including New City: Ancient street art festival (2014-2016), Going Home exhibition at the former Nizhny Novgorod Museum of Intellectuals (2017), and the Name Garden project at the Nizhny Novgorod crematorium (2019, together with Aleksey Korsi).
