Sochi Art Scene Archive

Sochi Art Scene archive was founded in 2020 to study and systematize knowledge of the contemporary art in Sochi and its development from the 1990s until the present moment. The art scene of Russia’s famous seaside resort is little studied and largely unknown. However, the city is home to active contemporary artists, who are working on building dialogue with local viewers and urban spaces, and with artists from other cities and countries. Artists’ interventions in Sochi’s cultural spaces are a regular occurrence.

The archive aims to collect and systematize information and artefacts relating to Sochi’s contemporary art scene. This primarily concerns projects created by local practitioners, but also those by individuals and institutions from other cities, such as the Russian-German cultural exchange project Quadrolog, Borderline Art Zones Festival, The Beautiful Guild art group, the alternative culture project Praxis, Sochi video art lab, and Territory Festival. The archive also contains documents related to key representatives of the city’s art scene, including biographical materials, information on exhibitions and art projects, posters, photographs, press cuttings, and other artefacts.

The archive is part of Typography Center for Contemporary Art.
