from August 15 to September 3(10)

in the gallery space at Winzavod

deadline August 6

Send portfolio, CV, artist statement to with the subject line "a-s-t-r-a open vol.3".

a—s—t—r—a open is a series of group exhibitions, during which the gallery space becomes a place of institutional debut, testing of new ideas and a platform for artistic dialog.

There are no restrictions on age, theme (within the limits of Russian law) or technique.

Works must be completed and ready to be exhibited by the specified deadline.



a-s-t-r-a gained a permanent space at Winzavod a year ago, and in addition to the constant search for new names, our main goal is to become a platform for dialog and hypothesis testing.

Therefore, we announce open calls in the following areas:

1. Exhibition of one work STATEMENT - a permanent cycle of solo show of artists selected by open call.

We do not limit the artist by theme, material or form.

The main task of the cycle is to initiate discussions on a variety of topics, which will be based on personal statements of the artists. 

We expect one work + a finished textual statement in the form of a manifesto.

The artist can speak together with a curator, art theorist or philosopher.

The winner of each new season will be provided with a gallery showcase (1.3 m by 3.4 m) to demonstrate one work and a separate surface to place a personal manifesto (0.7 m by 2.5 m), as well as the opportunity to hold a meeting at the gallery to discuss the raised topic with collectors and friends of the gallery.

Applications for participation are accepted to with "Statement" in the subject line.


2. We are open for interaction with CURATORS and are ready to consider various curatorial projects for realization on our site.

Please send a description of the project to with "CURATORIAL" in the subject line. 

3. We are open for cooperation with PHILOSOPHASTS and are ready to provide a venue for various educational events.

4. open call for applications from artists and curators for the exhibition cycle "CENTER WHERE I AM".

During 2023-2024 a-s-t-r-a together with invited curators (possibly you) will show exhibition group projects of artists (possibly you) from various cities: Nizhny Novgorod, Krasnoyarsk, Krasnodar, Voronezh, Vladivostok, Yekaterinburg, Ufa and others.

The task that a-s-t-r-a gallery sets for itself, initiating this cycle, is not only to acquaint Moscow collectors and art community with new names, but also to become a place for the realization of opportunities for the development of horizontal ties between the participants of art processes in different cities. In addition to exhibitions, the cycle envisages public talks, meetings and field art tours both for immersion in local art scenes and for exploring the Moscow cultural landscape.

Application requirements: please indicate in the subject line "the center where I am. CITY (where you are from)", attach a portfolio of works or an exhibition project to the letter in pdf format. It is obligatory to send a detailed CV as a pdf attachment.

For curators: the project may include artists from only one city or region and should reflect the current, possibly alternative art scene of contemporary art.


We are open for cooperation in various directions and will be glad to become a place where you can find like-minded people and feel that the horizon of possibilities has not collapsed, but on the contrary - opened for friendly embraces.

Important: if we have something to offer you, we will certainly respond. Our silence is not always a refusal, sometimes there is simply no suitable project to start cooperation.
