The exhibition “Rub the bronze dog’s nose” will be held in MMOMA on Petrovka, 25 from April, 16th to May 12th. This is the first joint project of the museum and the gallery, the main goals of which are to open an additional platform for communication and exchange of experience between young curators, as well as to enable artists of the school and the gallery to participate in new projects and, as a result, to be present on the art market.
On the 24th of April there will be an auction within the exhibition to support young art with the participation of students of the School of modern art and the gallery SAMPLE artists.
The question that the curators posed to the artists and to themselves is “how signs, superstitions and rituals can become an impulse to create a work of modern art?” Answering this question, the participants of the exhibition tried to combine archaic ideas and modern technologies, to deconstruct linguistic components or, on the contrary, to give them references to mythology and legends, to invent new superstitions and rituals as part of the author’s mythology.
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.
