FABRIKA

Founded in 2005, as PROEKT_FABRIKA, Center for Creative industries, FABRIKA now is the first independent not-for-profit contemporary visual art organisation in Moscow. Our project has more than 700 square meters of exhibition spaces, international residency,and 1000 square metres of venue space destined to accommodate diverse cultural and social events such as dance, theatre and music concerts. Originally designed to present a program of collective exhibitions, the project is now committed to promoting cultural and intellectual diversity through the presentation of international contemporary art and culture. In 2008 our centre became a member of Trans Europe Halls ( European network of independent culture centers).

CCI FABRIKA's focus is: visual arts, contemporary theatre and dance, media
CCI FABRIKA's mission is: challenging familiar ideas and concepts in order to formally defamiliarise them so that they can be seen anew.

Our programs are devoted towards inspiring thought and creativity whilst simultaneously stimulating public curiosity about contemporary art, thereby contributing towards developing the cultural identity of 21st Century Moscow.

Apart from the exhibition activity already mentioned, we are keen to develop joint projects in drama and documentary and also to diversify and develop our collaboration with those other contemporary art galleries in Moscow who would mutually benefit from such a co-operative and supportive working relationship. e.g. The Moscow House of Photography, with whom we have already begun to develop close links. CCI FABRIKA intends to present some international not-for-profit exhibition projects so as to strengthen the unifying and mutually beneficial advantages of collaborating in such a bringing together of cultures by which process we shall hope to affect and engage with contemporary art and culture both at home and abroad.
