We are a young gallery working with artists from the post-Soviet countries. The Calvert Journal coined a special term – the NEW EAST – to define this new cultural space of the Balkans, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
At Szena, we do not organize collective exhibitions, and there are several reasons for it. The main one is that we want to provide a forum for the artist’s and not curator’s statement. As we deem important to establish viable long-term relationships with the artists, the list of those we collaborate with is relatively short. Currently, it includes Anton Kushaev, Igor Samolet, Darya Gitmanovich and Alexey Taruts.
Thanks to Sample, we are now able to share with you a collection of our artists’ works. It has no particular subject or timeframe but is compiled with personal attention to every artist and his or her style.
To participate in the auction, you should register on the website - registration takes just a minute. Please enter your first name, last name and the email address. Your personal account is ready, now you can track your orders and save favourite works.
On the auction page you can "visit" a virtual exhibition, see framing examples and how the works look on the walls. If you want to make a bid, click on the link – it will take you to the auction page of a chosen lot.
The first bid may begin with the starting price of the work. You can determine the maximum price that you are ready to bid (you will need to place it manually) or choose the price with a proposed step of 1,000 rubles or 2,000 rubles using the up arrow in the price window. In order to place a bid, you need to click on the "place a bid" button - you will shortly receive a confirmation email. If another participant broke your bid, you will receive an email notification offering to make one more bid, which must be higher than the opponent’s one.
You can buy a lot for the offered price without participating in the auction by pressing “buy now” button. Congratulations! You won the auction and became the owner of the work.
If your bid was highest at the end of the auction, or you clicked the “buy now” button – you won the lot. You will receive an email with confirmation and a link to make the payment for the work. After the payment, the gallery manager will get in touch with you and confirm the order.
