Event took place as a part of the exhibition:
Art Battle: Orlitsky vs. Tuzov

The Orlitsky vs. Tuzov exhibition will be the first public “battle” between two young artists, Max Orlitsky and Ivan Tuzov, working in completely different genres and techniques. The exhibition occupies two halls, one of which houses works by Max Orlitsky, and the other pieces by Ivan Tuzov. The art battle will take place on stage during the vernissage.

An art battle is a new type of performance art. A duel involving brushes and paints visualizes competition: two artists fight one other to the glorious end. In the project Orlitsky vs., Orlitsky each time opposes another artist, "improving" the opponent’s work, while the competitor does the same with Orlitsky’s artwork. Two works created during the art battle will be permanently exhibited in the gallery after the opening. Three days after the opening, the edited video of the performance will be presented and will be broadcasted continuously on the gallery screens until the end of the exhibition.

Battle referee – Mikhail Sidlin.
