Garage, Archived

Location: MCA Garage
Year: 2016
Area: 100 sq.m.

"Garage, Archived" coincides with the first anniversary of Garage's move to its permanent home in Gorky Park.

This exhibition is the first project to draw on the Museum's institutional archive, sharing with audiences key milestones, such as the reconstruction of the historical spaces it has occupied, the experiences of the people who shape its inner workings, and the evolution of the educational and exhibition programs.

At the exhibition, visitors will also get the chance to look back on the Museum's eight-year history in real time: Garage's research team has recorded ten video interviews with several members of staff, some of whom have been working at Garage since it was founded in 2008.

For something quite different, one part of the exhibition is dedicated to an unusual archaeological collection, discovered during construction on the site of the new Garage building: medical vessels, and ink and perfume containers, dated back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
