Classes are provided for students of “School for Young Artists” exclusively
The participants of the “School for Young Artists” were working under the guidance of Lizaveta Matveeva on their own projects for the exhibition space of the PRO ARTE Foundation. Curator encouraged the students to express any idea through the space and create site-specific installations. The subject of the project depends on the interests of the artists themselves and current problems they are especially interested in.
