I was selected as one of eight winners of Garage's grant program 2017/2018. Currently the only program of its kind in the country, Garage's grant program was launched in 2012 in order to create a system of support for emerging artists. Offering emerging artists a period of financial independence, the program allows them to become more deeply engaged in creative activities, to grow professionally, and to conduct research. Recipients are also invited to take part in Garage’s exhibition and education programs. The winners, selected by an expert jury, are awarded a monthly fellowship of 30,000 rubles.
