6 July 2020 - 26 July 2020
From July 6th till 26th, 2020, MUAR and the online gallery of young art SAMPLE are holding an online auction to support Schusev State Museum of Architecture in the post-quarantine period. Together with SAMPLE, the Museum had collected 25 lots provided by leading Russian architects and interior designers.
Graphic works, architectural photographs, prints, sculptural objects and exclusive interior items are available at the charity auction.
Many works were created specifically for the MUAR x SAMPLE online auction: a photo by Maxim Atayants, a journal table from the Northern Lights collection by Dima Loginov, produced by YACHTLINE in a single copy in International Klein Blue, a drawing by Harry Nuriev, a gypsum object by Alexandra Gineva and Alexander Dobrovskiy from the “Masterskaya Be” bureau, pencil drawings by Andrey Bokov.
Other lots were exposed at various exhibitions in Moscow: a collage by Sergey Nadtochy, art director of the “Atrium” studio, a drawing by Oleg Manov, co-founder of the “FUTURA-ARCHITECTS” workshop, a print by Stanislav Subbotin and Daria Kirillova from “Ad Hoc Architecture”.
Signed photo prints of graphic sheets by Dmitry Bush and Sergey Chuklov, 1991 (the project “Another Glass House”, which received an Incentive award on the international competition of the “The Japan Architect” magazine) are the rarest objects of the “paper architecture” period.
Buyers will be able not only to support Schusev State Museum of Architecture but also become owners of amazing and exceptional items that can easily start one’s individual or corporate collection.
