#12 • September 15, 2021–October 9, 2021: Open Circle: Small World at Fragment Gallery, Potapovsky Lane, 12, Moscow, Russia


Fragment presents the second exhibition of the international gallery-sharing initiative called Open Circle. Each year a new theme is proposed for participating galleries. This time concept of the «Small world» exhibition reflects the modern processes of globalization. Despite those who oppose this phenomenon, the project organizers suggest perceiving the «Small world» tendency in a positive way, where art is becoming more accessible. We often notice common themes among artists living and working in different parts of the world, and this is just one of the inevitable manifestations of contemporary art. But the world is not becoming homogenized, instead, we witness the birth of a new community where everyone is somehow connected by five handshakes.

The gallery-sharing initiative features Misako & Rosen (Tokyo) with ironic and provocative videos and prints by the artist duo COBRA and Ken Kagami and Peres Projects (Berlin) with Rebecca Ackroyd’s graphics. Lubov (New York) will show a figurative triptych by Kevin Tobin; Raster (Warsaw) — Przemek Matecki’s series on Art History (previously shown at NADA Miami 2019), Temnikova & Kasela (Tallinn) — Sigrid Viir’s works earlier featured at OVR Art Basel last year; Capsule (Shanghai) — a video by Wang Haiyang (some of his other works will be available at Liste 2021). Fragment will show Kian McKeown’s melancholic, subtle and surreal works.

Open to the Public: Saturday, August 28 & Sunday, August 29, 11am–8pm

The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is pleased to announce a first time collaborative exhibition with Foreland, an 85,000 square-foot arts campus in the Hudson River Valley. Taking place August 28–29, 2021, NADA x Foreland will feature artwork installed in historic industrial buildings in the center of Catskill, New York.

In partnership with Upstate Art Weekend and co-organized with NADA Member Jesse Greenberg of JAG Projects, the exhibition will highlight artworks from the community of NADA galleries, non-profits, and artists with a focus on artists and exhibition spaces working in the region of Upstate New York, featuring 81 exhibiting galleries, non-profits, and artist-run spaces presenting over 100 artists.

This is the first collaboration between NADA and Foreland, allowing participants to present works in a dynamic new setting and engage with the lively community of collectors, artists, and arts professionals based in the Hudson Valley during the bustling Upstate Art Weekend.

NADA x Foreland continues NADA’s engagement with the many audiences of the Upstate New York region, building on past events such as the NADA County Affair in Callicoon, NY (2010), NADA Hudson (2011, 2012), and our partnership with Upstate Art Weekend in 2020.

Foreland is an 85,000 square-foot contemporary arts campus located in Catskill, NY. In its earliest iteration in the mid-1800s, the three brick buildings of the Foreland Campus were used to manufacture uniforms for Union soldiers during the Civil War. Since then, it has housed makers and manufacturers of all kinds. It sat dormant for years, until artist Stef Halmos purchased the buildings in 2017 and began painstakingly renovating and retrofitting them.

#4 • September 12–October 25, 2020: Open Circle at Fragment Gallery, 3rd Krasnoselsky Lane, 19, B. 7, Moscow, Russia


In September Fragment gallery is launching a gallery-sharing initiative called Open Circle. The theme of the first collaborative exhibition, which occupies a whole Fragment gallery space, is ‘The New (Sur)Realism’. It reflects, in the best possible way, times we all live in and shows different angles of contemporary artists practice, and strikes a balance between illusory, fictional and real life.

Each participating gallery was invited to become a co-curator of the month-long exhibition and show works by one of its artists. Capsule Shanghai presents a video work by Alice Wang, Lubov from New York — an installation by new media artist Theodore Darst, Raster from Warsaw brings prints by significant Polish artist Aneta Grzeszykowska, Temnikova & Kasela (Tallinn) — works by Jaanus Samma, who presented Estonia at the 56th Venice Biennale, and Fragment gallery shows paintings by Canadian artist of South Korean origin Sun Woo. Special bilingual platform (Rus/Eng) dedicated to Open Circle will be launched on September 16th.

«Despite only half of previously confirmed participant galleries being able to make it to the final show, I’m glad that Open Circle is finally happening in real life. In a time of very limited travelling, postponement of gallery and museum exhibitions, and cancellation of all major art fairs around the world, it’s important to show Moscow collectors works of international artists, and show them that life is still going on. We plan to make this project every September, to coincide with Cosmoscow art fair, to give galleries and collectors a chance to experience art from around the world not just for four days, but a whole month. We do hope other galleries from Moscow will join forces with us for future editions to create a strong, visible Russian gallery-sharing platform», said Sergey Guschin, founder of Fragment gallery and Open Circle initiative.

Her work, often taking the form of essayistic videos, recordings, readings, and performances, follow these relays towards creating environments from musical and non-musical artifacts alike -- a kind of "affective collaging” concerned with the personal deconstruction and re-assemblage of archival objects and documents. Asha’s work has been released via several imprints including Entr'acte Recordings, Recital Program, with forthcoming releases on Anomia and Marginal Frequencies.
