Olga Osterberg opened the D-137 Gallery in Saint Petersburg in 1996, which makes her one of the most experienced professionals in the field of contemporary Russian art in her country. She currently runs it as a private space and art-centre. She focuses on art from the late 1980s and the 1990s, as well as on young Russian artists.
Kristina Tarnarutskaya worked for the D-137 Gallery from 2006 to 2010. After relocating to Volgograd, she founded the “Frida beauty & art atelier“ – inspired by Frida Kahlo – for artists working in a variety of fields, such as visual art, photography, and tattoo-art. Supporting important local art-events, she is now collaborating with several art groups in search of a large exhibition space to be run as a creative hub for contemporary art.
Anna Matveeva worked for Russia’s leading national newspapers (Kommersant, Izvestia) and was a staff art columnist for Time Out, St. Petersburg, as well as for the professional art publications ArtChronika and ArtGuide. She is now working as a free-lance journalist in Berlin.
Hannelore Fobo is a curator (since 1989) and researcher in the field of the Leningrad avant-garde of the 1980s (“New Artists“). She closely works with (E-E) Evgenij Kozlov and has curated his current exhibition at the Egbert Baqué Contemporary “USA-CCCP-CHINA. Works 1980-1989” (catalogue).
