National Center for Contemporary Art (NCCA) in Moscow
A museum is a space for the gathering of creative forces. It is an environment in which a sum of ideas and thoughts, concrete or abstract, cohabit. It is a landscape, an archipelago emerging over the horizon, or the opposite, it is clearings in a forest, each sheltering something unexpected.
Art of today is an active and reactive matter. It is always looking for a dialogue with its surroundings, be it people, light or space. It attracts everything, it reacts to everything. The art of tomorrow will arise from any medium, from any subject, from any space. Starting now, there are no rules, no limits left. Facing this worldwide movement, the museum of tomorrow will no longer be a mere white box, a homogenous space, soulless, devoid of thickness, bumps and sounds, always spotless, functional, discrete and, above all, polite. No. The museum of tomorrow will be multiple. It will be a thousand places. It will be a white box…if you want it to; it will be a street, an apartment building, a flat, a room, a bed. It will be a public space, a garden, a square, a place of worship, a nave. It will be a passenger boat, a barge, a raft. It will be a wall, a flight of stairs, a belvedere, a bunker. It will be a hill, a convent, a courtyard. I will be a market. It will be a city, part of the metropolis.
