The exhibition organized by the auction and online gallery of young art SAMPLE was held within the VIP program of the COSMOSCOW contemporary art fair.
The first floor of the concept-store was a three-minute walk from Cosmoscow and became the alternative fairgrounds for the weekend. SAMPLE YOUNG ART presented the works of young artists only at a reasonable price. The curators of the gallery focused on the alternative media – expressive ceramics of Julia Iosilson and Apollinaria Brosh, vivid graphic sculptures of Masha Somik and Emily Platzer and textile collages by Shari Santo. The exhibition featured works by German graphic artists – seven-abstract prints with elements of painting by Benjamin Badok and the art group Palefroi, graphic sketches by Stefan Dubus, all full of hidden quotations of classical subjects and humor, attracting attention with the effect of recognizability and purity of form and color.
The artists – Palefroi, Apolinaria Brosch, Benjamin Badoc, Alex Dubinsky, Stephan Dubus, Julia Iosilzon, Victoria Kogai, Emily Platzer, 010010studio, Shari Santo, Maria Somik, Anna Tsoi.
Collaboration between SAMPLE and “Sections” is a continuation of the cooperation started in August of the same year with the exhibition of works and site-specific murals of two new artists of the project – Victoria Kogai and Anna Tsoi, their works have become part of SAMPLE YOUNG ART.
Also on the 7th of September a tournament between young artists and curators, organized in cooperation with PING PONG CLUB MOSCOW, took place at the exhibition.
