|catalog| 2024
From April 12 to 14, 2024, the Association of Galleries (AGA) will hold the second edition of the Contemporary Art Fair |catalog| in Moscow, which will be attended by more than 50 Russian galleries. The venue will again be Ivan Sytin's historic printing house on Pyatnitskaya Street, also known as the First Model Printing House.
About the |catalog| art fair

The fair was organized by the Association of Galleries (AGA). The project was initiated by gallery owners Dmitry Hankin, Alexander Sharov, Alina Kryukova and Sofia Trotsenko, founder of the Winzavod Central Exhibition Center. The initiative was supported by Andrei Severilov and Valery Nosov, publishers of the conceptual project about art and style Black Square.

Being a young professional fair, |catalog| brings its own innovations: equal conditions of participation and the size of stands for galleries, the place of which is determined by drawing lots. This practice represents a new, more democratic approach to exhibiting art, fundamentally different from the mechanism adopted at international fairs to allocate space according to the scale and prominence of the gallery. Also |catalog|, without limiting the number of artists on the stand, sets the condition that in the spring edition of the fair the galleries show the works of their headliners, and in the winter edition of the fair they present new names to the art market and professional community by adding at least one young artist to the stand.

|catalog| supports several activities of gallery associations, the most important of which is the development of the Russian art market. Being the most important institutions of contemporary art, fairs stimulate the growth of the market not only by quantity, but also by regularity: |catalog| takes place twice a year in Moscow (spring and winter), and also plans to regularly organize fairs in different cities of Russia. This will make it possible to introduce and engage the widest possible audience in a dialog with the country's current art, and will open up new directions and local art scenes for Moscow collectors.

Discussions
Developing the educational direction of the AGA, |catalog| will organize a lecture and discussion program, in which in addition to discussing professional issues of the art market with leading representatives of the industry, the general public will be presented a lecture on collecting contemporary print art by Alexei Veselovsky, the founder of "PiranesiLAB". In the future, this lecture will become the basis for the roadmap for collecting print art being developed on the basis of the AGA.

The partner of the parallel |catalog| program is A-House, which will host the exhibition "Architecture 1.0" from April 10 to 14. The fair will feature a series of meetings and thematic discussions organized together with architects and designers.
