Tikhaya Studio is a new type of institution, where artists’ studios become a place for friends to meet, an exhibition space, and a research center.
Launched in 2015 in Nizhny Novgorod as a working space for artists, over time Tikhaya was transformed into a full‑scale institution and a point of attraction for city residents and visitors. At the heart of the studio’s activity is a self‑organization of resident artists and their co‑thinkers, who work together on developing the art scene in the city.
The following formats combine as part of the studio’s activities: exhibitions, support for young Nizhny Novgorod artists, open storage that functions as a showroom for collectors and curators, an archive and research program about the local art scene. Tikhaya Studio remains a workplace for artists, where the value of informal communication, join creativity, and private surroundings is preserved and supported.
