OPEN CULTURE

Nataliya Resh

Founder of OCF

From a young age the vast world of art opened for me, it evoked in me an increasing interest as the study of art history.

I really liked the direct interaction with art, and not in the form of visiting exhibitions on the weekends.

Constantly and purposefully at the end of the working day, I chose the place of interest to me, I went there alone to talk face to face with the phenomenal artists, I could watch them for hours and notice more and more detail, getting a deeper understanding into the mindset of the authors.

From a young age the vast world of art opened for me, it evoked in me an increasing interest as the study of art history.

I really liked the direct interaction with art, and not in the form of visiting exhibitions on the weekends.

Constantly and purposefully at the end of the working day, I chose the place of interest to me, I went there alone to talk face to face with the phenomenal artists, I could watch them for hours and notice more and more detail, getting a deeper understanding into the mindset of the authors.

Throughout my life I met interesting people from the world of art, learned the most interesting facts and details about this environment and its heritage. Also, I was fortunate enough to take part in art restoration programs, which further linked me to this area.

Once I was invited to participate in a large international cultural and art project with a big budget, in which it was simply impossible to speak from only myself, as it was about working in a team. So in 2014, the ‘Open Culture’ Foundation was founded.

It was a year of excange of the cultural experience of Russia and Great Britain, we were fortunate enough to be engaged in planning and developing interesting exchange programs, thanks to them many students were given the opportunity of free education.

I may write a whole book with details about how we worked on this project.

As the founder of the ‘Open Culture’ Foundation, I am grateful to everyone who reads these lines for their interest in the activities of our charitable organization.

About the Foundation

The Open Culture Foundation was established in 2014 to support and popularize projects in the field of culture and art. One of the priorities of the Foundation is to assist in the organization of exhibition and educational activities.


Also, the fund carries out wide consulting and information activities - from legal and audit consultations to assisting in the financing and organization of working groups of the most striking and interesting projects in the field of fine arts and philanthropy.


We support various cultural initiatives: exhibitions, educational and publishing programs. One of the most important areas is the support of regional programs and the establishment of strong communication bridges, both within Russia and beyond. To do this, we organize an innovative field for cultural dialogue.


Art is something that unites people of different cultures and ideologies in different parts of the world. We try to do our best to provide informational support for cultural projects, as well as to support educational and other projects in every possible way. We strive to achieve our goals through close interaction with the media, publishing materials, conducting lectures and other cultural events.

All the funds raised by us are used to implement this goals.


But perhaps the most important part of the Foundation’s main program is establishing of reliable communication channels between the Russian regions and the foreign audience with a view to explore art and culture of this country.

t was a confusing year, but on the other way an interesting one. After a protracted lockdown, the festival took place and we held our event!

- We have experienced how to adapt flexibly to the Covid-19 restrictions

- This brought us a new collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Environment and Water

- The event gathered a lot of positive and warm responses, which gave us motivation to work further, create new and carry our Charity Mission!


We express our deep gratitude to our partners and those who support our Foundation and our Great Mission.

Kate Fowle will meet with Jerry Gorov

Garage’s chief curator Kate Fowle will meet with Jerry Gorov, now president of the Louise Bourgeois Foundation in Easton, to talk …


The life and work of the outstanding artist and, in particular, about the history of the creation of the "Cells" cycle, in which Gorovoy was directly involved as an assistant.


Louise Bourgeois is an American painter, sculptor and graphic artist of French origin. She was born December 25, 1911 (died May 31, 2010) in Paris. As a teenager, Louise was admitted to the prestigious Lyceum of Fenelon. She was very close to her mother, Josephine. The girl had to endure the untimely death of her mother, which was a terrible blow for her — especially in light of the tense relationship with her father. "My emotions are out of proportion to my physical dimensions. Not the emotions themselves, but their strength — it is simply unbearable for me. So I give their energy".


The work of Louise Bourgeois is often called the encyclopedia of contemporary art, as it reflects all the main directions of art of the twentieth century — cubism, futurism, surrealism, constructivism and abstractionism. Louise Bourgeois created her own special symbolic vocabulary, in which personal experiences and fantasies are concretized into expressive images. For example, using a spider is not a sign of arachnophobia (fear of spiders), but rather a sign of a wrapping and patient mother. In the same way, sewing needles are not aggressive symbols, but are used to represent loss recovery.


Bourgeois’s "Spiders" are widely known — metal sculptures of huge spiders. In 1999, the artist received the Golden Lion at the 48th Venice Biennale.

13th annual Frieze London contemporary art fair

The Frieze art fair for VIP guests was opened today, where the founder of the Open Culture Foundation Natalia Resh is currently present, to convey the atmosphere of the event.


Frieze had not yet had time to open, and a life-long line was already waiting to open outside. Despite the cold and wind, the audience was hot and very lively in anticipation of the opening and what awaits them behind the still closed doors.
