Foolproof Feelings
NCCA Arsenal, Nizhny Novgorod, Russia

The exhibition “Foolproof Feelings” marks the 20th anniversary of the Nizhny Novgorod branch of the National Center for Contemporary Art.

“Foolproof Feelings” is a space of relationship between viewers, artworks, artists, historical and cultural context of Nizhny Novgorod. The exhibition does not have any strict thematic limitation, it shows a set of artistic situations and possible experiences of perceiving separate artworks. During the exhibition the Arsenal halls will turn into a park with pavilions and paths where every visitor can find his or her own routes. The exhibition will present over 30 Russian and foreign authors: paintings, drawings, sculpture and installations from the ROSIZO and private collections. Lars Cuzner and Cassius Fadlabi (Norway), Matthieu Martin (France) and ZIP Artgroup (Krasnodar) will create artworks specially for the exhibition.
