The second City: Details Exhibition will be held from March 26 to 28 in VDNKh’s Pavilion 75 this year. This is a unique platform that showcases new ideas for creating comfortable urban spaces, where designers, architects and urbanists will present concepts for small architectural structures, sports grounds, city squares, and functional urban artwork. The City: Details Exhibition is held as part of the capital’s My District program, which was launched in 2018 to create comfortable urban spaces in every Moscow neighborhood, regardless of its distance from the center. The program is carried out based on the ideas and wishes of the residents themselves.

Mass Media about us
“Urban installation art is never just ‘art for art’s sake’, experts reasoned. Even if an art installation is not a bench, street furniture, or a sign, it carries its own more complex and implicit semantic meaning.”
“Benches, streetlights, stairs, fountains and sculptures influence residents’ perception of their urban environment and form the design code of a particular place.”
“At VDNKh, you can take a peek into Moscow’s future, one that’s not far away. For three days, the 75th pavilion is transformed into a mini-city with streets, parks, and even a square with fountains and installation art from famous artists.”
“The industry of creating urban environments is actively progressing, and other regions are also facing the tasks Moscow is working on now.”
