The Common Goal Philosophy – New Project by GUM-Red-Line
GUM-Red-Line presents The Common Goal Philosophy project as part of the 7th Cosmoscow International Contemporary Art Fair that is held at Gostiny Dvor.
The project, initiated by artist Gosha Ostretsov, unites more than 20 famous Russian contemporary artists: Olga Bozhko, Ksenia Dranysh, Vladimir Dubossarsky, EliKuka Art Group, Konstantin Zvezdochetov, Alisa Yoffe, Liudmila Konstantinova, Irina Korina, Oleg Kotelnikov, Olga Kroytor, Daria Krotova, Georgy Litichevsky, Misha Most, Gosha Ostretsov, Sergey Pakhomov (Pakhom), Pavel Pepperstein, Aleksandr Petrelli, Tanya Pioniker, Inal Savchenkov, Nikolay Filatov, Valery Chtak.
The new GUM-Red-Line Project was visited by numerous notable personalities: Olga Sviblova, Alyona Doletskaya, Andrey Malakhov, Konstantin and Alina Kryukov, Anna Alexandrova, Rinal Mukhametov, Elena Krygina, Marianna Maximovskaya, Yang Ge, Sabina Akhmedova, Ingrid Olerinskaya, Karina Andolenko, Tatyana Gevorkyan, MariKa, and many others.
During the first two days of Cosmoscow (the preview on September 5 and the first day open to the public – September 6), visitors will be able to follow the work of the artists in real-time on plasma screens on site and via the GUM-Red-Line site (all footage will be captured with a crane). On September 7-8, the final results of the project will be presented.
The project is themed around space. To understand the cosmos, one must first accept it as a unified environment that is inherently connected to humanity while discarding the impression of cosmos as terrifying “uncharted waters”. The project demonstrates the importance of gaining understanding about our Universe through philosophy and art.
Upon the completion of the Cosmoscow Fair, the painted 140-meter canvas divided into conceptual fragments will be displayed at GUM-Red-Line on Red Square. Along with the display of group art elements, the Gallery will present individual artworks by the event participants. The works will be demonstrated on mobile stands as a symbolic Russian contemporary art archive fund.
