The Moscow Museum of Modern Art in collaboration with Esquire magazine presents the Dust and Scratches project, to be held from Feb. 13 to 19. The exhibition, prepared by Esquire magazine art director and project curator Maxim Nikanorov, brings together the works of the world’s most prominent photographers, most of whom have never exhibited their works in Moscow before.
The exhibition took its name from the eponymous Internet project: the Dust and Scratches gallery allows visitors to conveniently and quickly acquire the best works of modern photographic art at poster prices. Thanks to a partnership with Esquire magazine, hundreds of the world’s leading photographers — including winners of the World Press Photo contest and other prestigious competitions — agreed to exhibit and sell their work in the Dust and Scratches gallery. Project curator Maxim Nikanorov personally selected each of the thousands of photographs displayed in the gallery.
The exhibition includes works by such photographers as Piero Martinello, Steven Barritt, Jack Radcliffe, Amy Touchette, Brian Sorg, Jeroen Hofman, Keliy Anderson-Staley, Erik Refner, Adam Panczuk and others.
Esquire magazine will hold a party in honor of the project on Feb. 17. The magazine’s advertisers, business partners and friends will be invited to attend.
The project was carried out with support from Mini.
