On 25–28 November 2021, Vyksa will be hosting The Art and Practices of Hospitality — an international conference focusing on the subject of hospitality across cultural and creative disciplines, including contemporary art, museology, artist-in-residence programmes, design, architecture, inclusion, and their intersections.
The conference has been designed for a wide range of art professionals: artists, curators, art managers, architects, researches, and specialists in inclusivity and education programmes.
Conference modules: Hospitality agents: artists, museums, artist residencies; The boundaries of hospitality: diversity, the national and the global, the pandemic, the environmental factor; How to foster a welcoming environment: design, architecture, inclusion, sustainability, communities.
For Russian artistic residences the conference becomes a venue for another general gathering, a possibility to discuss the challenges that the format is faced at the pandemic times and in the situation of post-mobility.
I am participating in this event not only as an audience member but also as a moderator of the discussion “I don’t complain and I like everything”, which will be devoted to the artists' experience of hospitality in art residences. The event will take place on November 27 at the Vyksa AiR. Follow the online streaming of the conference on its website.
