One of the goals for the Art Award is finding and supporting promising artists, curators  and musicians, to raise the status of contemporary art and to integrate it in the international cultural  life. Sergey Kuryokhin Contemporary Art Award is specifically focused on the principles of the «Popular  Mechanics»: provocation, performance, improvisation and unexpectedness. Sergey Kuryokhin Contemporary Art Award commemorates the synthesis of various forms of art, the search for new meanings and the  revolutionary courage – the only kind that can change the world.

The award ceremony takes place April 21st at The Kamenny Island Theatre in St. Petersburg.
