The new contemporary art center "GES-2" will open in the center of Moscow on December 4th this year. The opening of the center was delayed for more than a year due to the influence of the new coronavirus.
The installation of the Swiss artist installation "Big Clay # 4" has been decided to popularize "GES-2". "Big Clay" was created in 2013-2014 and exhibited in the United States (2015) and Italy (2017). The work of art evoked various reactions among the citizens of Moscow.
