They say that somewhere between St. Petersburg and Moscow there is a place where the curb turns into a curb. Other metamorphoses can certainly occur in the same place - over more than 300 years of “confrontation” many semantic and semiotic differences have accumulated between the two Russian capitals.
In 1836, Nikolai Gogol was surprised at the difference “between the two of them”: “How stretched, how old Moscow expanded! What unkempt she is! How he moved, how dandy Petersburg drew himself into a string! In front of him is a mirror on all sides: there is the Neva, there is the Gulf of Finland. He has a place to look… Moscow is an old homebody, bakes pancakes, looks from afar and listens to the story, without rising from the armchair, about what is being done in the light; Petersburg is a frisky fellow, never sits at home, always dressed and, prettily in front of Europe, bows with overseas people. ”
Gogol’s contemporary, critic Vissarion Belinsky, called Petersburg and Moscow two separate sides of one whole, and, relying on the railway under construction at that time, longed for their merger in harmony.
But progress has changed little. A century later, another Russian writer, Georgy Ivanov, recalled: “There has been enmity between Petersburg and Moscow for centuries. Petersburgers ridiculed The Dog’s Playground and Dead Lane, Muscovites reproached St. Petersburg with stiffness, unusual for the “Russian soul”. However, there were people who wanted to put an end to rivalry. According to the testimony of Georgy Ivanov, in 1919, one poet proposed to the Soviet government a project to unite capitals into one: “The project was simple. To forbid in St. Petersburg and Moscow to build houses differently than on the line of the Nikolaev railway. Ten years later, according to the calculation of the inventor, both cities should merge into one - Petroskva, with the central street - Kuz-Nevsky Mospect ”.
Times are changing, cities and their inhabitants are changing. How do today’s artists see Moscow and St. Petersburg? How dissimilar are they? How close are they? Moscow is also glorious by kalach, and Petersburg by barbel? Who doesn’t have a decree for Moscow? Where is Petersburg going when Moscow is heading for the matins? Is Moscow still waking up the bell, and Petersburg is the drum?
In search of answers to these questions, the Tushino Exhibition Hall and Artcultivator announce the curatorial selection of works for the PITER-MOSCOW art exhibition, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the capital’s move from Petrograd to Moscow.
The project is non-profit, participation is free. Any adult author can take part, regardless of place of birth and residence. The curatorial group expects from each artist at least two works that are consistent with the theme and spirit of the exhibition.
To take part in the curatorial selection, the author must send the following to email@example.com:

The deadline for accepting applications for participation in the project is until February 01, 2018.
The works selected by the curators will take part in the exhibition at the Tushino Exhibition Hall in March - April 2018. The exact dates will be published additionally.
