The National Center for Contemporary Art (NCCA) invites sound- and media artists, and composers to dialogue about color within the framework of the new project "Experiences of AudioVisuality" (curated by Natalia Fuchs).

"Russian Red Ordinary" - the second exhibition of the new regional program of the NCCA, dedicated to the Kaliningrad situation and representing the total installation of one artist. Solo exhibition of Yuri Vasiliev, an artist who turns a red color into a metaphor, referring to the collisions of the twentieth century, when the drama of the intonations of red, as a symbol of life and death, changed the concentration vector from the red "beautiful" (Red Square) and the color of life, sacrifice and heroism (Old Russian iconography), to the sign of tragic omens (K.Malevich's "Red Square"), revolutionary moods and transformations (Russian constructivism). Evgeny Umansky, art director of the Baltic branch of the State Center for Contemporary Art, is the curator of the exhibition.

The project "Experiences of AudioVisuality" exploring the sound expressive means and principles, is based on the concept of synaesthesia, and in the "Space of red" it refers to the field of color music interpretations and the search for non-standard artistic solutions.
