According to her, the creators of the new generation do not follow the avant-garde artists, but enter into a dialogue with them through conceptual reflections, ironic gestures and romantic idealism.
The project, created with the support of the Tretyakov Gallery, consists of a series of monumental contemporary sculpture and public art objects in the pedestrian zone of the park.
“The only eternal thing in our world is art, so why not use it for therapeutic purposes,” says clinical psychologist Daria Serebryanskaya. “It makes you think and feel, evokes various images and associations, activates cognitive processes, memory, thinking, affects emotional background.
The installations can be seen from September 29 in Malevich Park (Odintsovo, the village of Discord). Free admission.

Moscow Museum of Modern Art invites you to the exhibition “White Cube. August”
The presented works of different generations – playing fields, archaic symbols of the labyrinth, topographic maps, panoramic landscapes – are united by a common theme: wandering inside the “picture of the world”.
“Through art, we learn to see the hidden and realize three realities: the environment, the world of other people and ourselves,” explains psychiatrist Yevgeny Ilchenko. “Looking at the artist’s work, we touch his perception of reality. It is also important that we develop empathy, that is ability to better understand the feelings of others.
The experimental exhibition “White Cube. August” runs at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art until October 16. The entrance is free.
A day at the museum
Every third week of the month, the museums of the capital open their doors to everyone, but the participants of the action work free of charge only on one of the days.

According to Daria Serebryanskaya, it is possible and even necessary to escape into the artistic world.
It is also useful to discuss impressions: thanks to this, the horizons expand and the imagination turns on, adds Yevgeny Ilchenko.
