Yekaterinburg is a pretty city with singing fountains, unique constructivist architecture, and a famous dumpling plant. It has a number of cultural institutions, including the Yeltsin Center, the aforementioned Ural Branch of the NCCA, the Metenkov House Museum of Photography, the Cultural Transit Foundation, and the B.U. Kashkin Museum. Curiously enough, artists work in these organizations. For example, Sergei Rozhin and Sergei Poteryaev are on the staff of the Cultural Transit Foundation. The latter is also a curator at Metenkov House, while Vladimir Seleznyov is a curator at NCCA. These three artists know and support each other: during our meetings, each of them recommended that I take a look at the others’ work. Many artists work in several different media at once: Rozhin engages in visual art, music, and street art, while Sasha Saltanova, who works under various pseudonyms, makes interventions in public spaces and engages in video and light art.
