Four years have passed since then, and this year the Russian program celebrated its first graduating class.

Artworks by 14 Russian and foreign artists, including Semen Alexandrovsky, Tatyana Akhmetgalieva, Dmitry Bulnygin, Marnix De Nies, Martin Onert will be on display. The exhibition will include various types of media, such as video, sound and light installations, photographs and objects.
Photography project Private Moon of Leonid Tishkov will become one of the highlights of the future exhibition. According to the artist, it is a "visual poem telling the story of a man who met the Moon and stayed with her for the rest of his life." Each photograph is a poetic fairytale, hence each picture is accompanied by a verse written by the artist.
The event is curated by the Pushkin Museum's director Marina Loshak, and the curator of museum's digital art department Olga Shishko.
Pushkin Museum's project will be on view from May 13 to September 5.
