Produced with Nina Zaretskaya, Founder of TV Gallery Moscow, the salon at Streaming Museum's studio is inspired by the “AptArt” exhibitions of Nonconformist artists in 1970-80s USSR. The art is available for sale to support Streaming Museum's international programs and artists, modeled on Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s method for funding their arts projects through art sales.
