Visionaire at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art Moscow

In celebration of Visionaire's 25th anniversary, Visionaire commissioned a year-long series of "artist commercials," or short films, highlighting their 65 highly collectible, multi-format issues published since 1991. Each artist or filmmaker selected an issue of Visionaire, whose themes—DESIRE, POWER, FANTASY, and many more—provided the inspiration to create evocative and unexpected films. Ranging from 15 seconds to 4 minutes, the outcome lies at the core of Visionaire's ethos, and in the exhibition—and with a certain sense of irony—Visionaire mused further upon the notion of artist freedom vs commercialism through the tongue-in-cheek oxymoron of an "artist commercial".
