In summer 2017 in Fragment Gallery the exhibition “Cemetery Dialog” was taken, the exposition of which included works of the 21 winners of open call project “Reflection”. Among participants of the exhibition there are both Russian and European artists. In all, over 300 applications were submit-ted to the open call, and winners were selected through a vote by Fragment Gallery artists. Open call participants were intentionally not bounded by any limitations: the theme of the exhibition was chosen subsequently after an analysis of selected works. The curator of the resulting exhibition Cemetery Dialogue is Fragment Gallery artist Ilya Fedotov-Fedorov.
Fragment Gallery was founded in December 2016. It works with young artists that it promotes in Russia and Europe. It selects young artists that have already begun to make a name for themselves. In 2017 the gallery took part in International Contemporary Art Fair Cosmoscow for the first time. The gallery’s booth has got a prize as the best booth of the artfair. A recent gallery project is the personal Zina Isupova’s exhibition The area of Inouthenticity, that focuses on analysis of how massmedia and social networks change perception of military conflicts. Earlier, the gallery presented Ilya Fedotov-Fedorov’s exhibition Preservation Instinct, the Parallel Programme of the 7th Moscow International Biennale of Contemporary art; Ilmira Bolotyan’s solo show Dates at the Museum that studied communication on dating sites and made a critique of contemporary art; Alexey Martins’ project Mental Firewood devoted to the Siberian mentality; Azerbaijan Baroque, the first solo show in Moscow by the Baku artist Farhad Farzaliyev; a solo project by the musician and performance artist Lisokot; and others.
