The Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the School of Contemporary Art ‘Free Workshops’ and the online gallery SAMPLE present a collaborative project ‘Rub the Bronze Dog’s Nose’. The exhibition will bring together 22 young artists and will explore the belief in everyday practical magic and the occasionally intuitive dependence on superstitions and magical rituals. The title of the show evokes one of the most visible features of Moscow life — the tradition of Lomonosov Moscow State University students to rub the noses of the four bronze dogs at the metro station ‘Ploshchad Revolyutsii’ before their finals. The curatorial team includes the graduates of the ‘Free Workshops’ School Elizaveta Vorobieva and Svetlana Dorogina, as well as the co-founders of the SAMPLE gallery Anna Naumova and Sofia Simakova.
