‘Kvartirniki’ is about meeting interesting people and learning new things.
‘Kvartirniki’ is an educational project inspired by the small concerts of 1980s Russia, when the most amazing events took place in the kitchens of communal apartments.
The ‘kvartirniki’ at the Demetra Art Hotel are not concerts, but creative meetings, conversations, and lectures on topics of the speaker’s choice. The central figures of ‘Kvartirniki’ are:
Billy Novik, musician.
Ekaterina Lopatkina, art critic, curator of the exhibition ‘Frida Kahlo’, and deputy head of the Contemporary Art department at the State Hermitage Museum
Artem Balaev, co-founder/owner of the food festival ‘O, da! Eda!’
Dr. Georgy Goncharov, physicist and mathematician at the Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory
Dmitri Ozerkov, director of the Contemporary Art department at the State Hermitage Museum
Mikhail Astakhov, head curator of the Street Art Museum
Albina Motor, former producer at the Street Art Museum
Ksenia Malich, curator of architecture projects at the State Hermitage Museum
