In June 2018 I graduated from Institute of Contemporary Art (Moscow, Russia) with a specialization in “New Strategies in Contemporary Art”. This year I had two solo shows (and several groups shows as well): one called “Zugzwang” (curator: Alexey Maslyaev, Head of the Methodic and Research Section of the Education Department at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art) took place at Fragment Gallery (Moscow, Russia) in May-June and was a part of parallel program of VI Biennial of Young Art; another one in July — at the Vacation gallery (New York), and was featured on ARTNews. In 2017 I won grants for artistic residency at the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts and spent there three weeks on a course “What the work tells about the tools” under curatorship of Michael Beutler where I was happy enough to dive into the atmosphere of collaborative process when creating large-scale installations. On May 2017 Phillips auction house asked me to give one of my artworks for exhibition and charity auction held at The Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center (Moscow, Russia). It was sold in benefit of educational programs of ICA I was studying at. In 2016, I was on the board of experts for V-A-C Foundation to select a work from Russian artist to donate to Museum of Contemporary Art in Antwerp, Belgium (M KHA). Also that year I was invited as one of the jury among major Russian art experts to select top art influencers list for an annual rating for leading online art press, Artguide. I had been chosen several times to moderate conferences. In June 2018, “Future of Art” by major business publishing house “Kommersant” and international art fair Cosmoscow (Moscow, Russia) with such speakers as Olga Shishko (Head of the Department of Film and Media Art at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts), Margarita Pushkina (Director and Founder of Cosmoscow) and Svetlana Marich (Deputy Director of Phillips auction house). In September 2018 I was a moderator and speaker for one of the educational program at Cosmoscow — “How awards, grants and media influence the development of young artists' work”. In September 2018 the book “Contemporary Art: How Stop to Afraid it” were published by important book publishing house AST with me as one of two co-authors. After the first weeks of sales it became a best-seller. In early 2019 I’m attending for three weeks High House artistic residency (Norfolk, UK) under curatorship of Anthony Gormley.
