KultProekt is a Moscow gallery dedicated to contemporary art. Established in 2008 by Julia Manusevich and Irina Solntseva, the gallery is located in the center of Moscow. The gallery works with both major masters of the art scene and talented young artists. KultProekt Gallery has realized more than 150 projects. The gallery aims at conducting thematic art exhibitions presented with complex projects, which include the publication of catalogs, master classes of artists and photographers, meetings and lectures. The gallery aims at conducting series of exhibition projects combined in a single cycle. The gallery hosts exhibitions which explore interdisciplinary interests.
Solo exhibitions are rather rare for the gallery; they mostly represent artists of a truly polyphonic talent who work in different genres simultaneously acting as authors of texts and theatre designs, masters of livre d'artiste and brilliant painters, decorators, and architects. Curators of the gallery are interested in immediate problems related to environmental issues and the development of architecture. Uniting in one project artists of different generations, artistic techniques while building a new curatorial context is one of the main tasks of the gallery. Other tasks include the strengthening of the artistic statements in the field of like-minded people's discourse, the unification of different works with a common idea.
KultProekt participated in the Manifesta 10, the European Biennale of Contemporary Art, frequently takes part in the Moscow PhotoBiennale of Contemporary Art, COSMOSCOW 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, SCOPE Miami 2018, SCOPE New York 2019 and VOLTA Basel 2019, P/CAS Paris, CADAF Miami 2019, Untitiled SF 2020, VOLTA New York 2020.
Mikhail Molochnikov was born in 1963. He graduated from Moscow Architectural College. His works are currently held in public and private collections worldwide, including: the State Russian Museum (St Petersburg), the State Tretyakov Gallery (Moscow), the National Museum of Russian Fine Art (Moscow), The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts (Moscow), Tampere Art Museum (Finland), Kaliningrad Museum of Art (Kaliningrad). While looking at works of Mikhail Molochnikov, the audience can meditatively immerse into the art, as if they were reading Buddhist mantras.
In his works organic shapes have both symbolic and fractal meanings, imbued with bright energy. His works are partly decorative and refer to the works of Russian artists of the 20th century. They are associated with the “Russian seasons” by Sergei Diaghilev. Diversity of shapes and the colorfulness and brightness of Mikhail’s works refer us to the creations of Leon Bakst and the choreography of Vaclav Nijinsky in the ballet “The Afternoon Rest of the Faun”.
