On opening day, be sure to plan your visit to coincide with the artist talks hosted throughout the afternoon and evening. Rirkrit Tiravanija, Katharina Grosse, and Erik Bulatov will all be on site to discuss their work currently on view. Tiravanija’s first large-scale presentation in Russia, “Rirkrit Tiravanija: Tomorrow is the Question,” consists of participatory projects that draw upon the history of the building as well as the artist’s experiences of Moscow.
Garage is also playing host to Grosse’s Russian debut. In “yes no why later,” the artist overwhelms an 800-square-meter gallery with an immersive, site-specific installation that incorporates trees, soil, and Grosse’s signature splashes of color. Bulatov’s “Come to Garage!” takes over the entrance of the building, placing two massive paintings on a 9.5-meter-high structure, the first artwork in a series of commissions for the museum’s atrium.
The artists will be available at the following times on June 12th:
3:30–4:00 p.m. Rirkrit Tiravanija in the Central Gallery
4:00–4:30 p.m. Katharina Grosse in the Garage Museum Pavilion
5:30–6:00 p.m. Erik Bulatov in the Entrance Hall
