Every summer, art takes over  Moscow for a weekend. From fashion shows, music, graffiti, streetwear and all it’s subcultures, all of them merge into an interactive exhibition meant to promote alternative contemporary art.


This year the exhibition celebrated it’s 10th year anniversary, and took over Gorky Park, making it a large cultural platform for a few days. Over 350 local artists and international brands like Burn, Nike, Vans, Puma, Reebok, Casio, JBL, RE:STORE, and many others, took part of the event.
