“Pop-up club Door19 is a restaurant, modern art gallery and a pre-party bar at the same time. The club, situated on the last floor of ArtHouse on the 19 Serebryanicheskaya emb., will bring the epicenter of Moscowâs cultural and gastronomic life in the area of the future ArtKvartal on the Yauza river for the second time this year.
Moscow is still hot after the first Door 19 where the tables for the coming weekend were already booked early in the week. All this was happening in a yet uninhabited giant penthouse with 12-meter high ceilings in a new residential building ArtHouse. The best street artists in Moscow and Europe, together with a team of the architectural studio P H. D turned it into a temporary club Door 19, which was visited by more than 12000 people during the 6 weeks of its work. All the key Moscow publications wrote about it and not once; even the prestigious Financial Times run a two-page feature.
The ArtKvartal team could not stop at this, of course â ‘the second coming’ of Door19 had to happen as a matter of course. Opening a seemingly familiar door on the 25th September will bring you in another world â different light, different audio and visual component. The art content will be fully updated: to a variety of art genres, young Russian digital art will be added. ArtKvartal team has come up with a ‘check-in art’ expression: P H. D studio team and its founder Lana Grineva, while renovating the 460 sq m penthouse for its second season, stayed loyal to the idea of having space for air and life in the gigantic 9-meter ceilings loft, leaving the impression of an undone and an elusive interior design. The new balconies and a mezzanine do not only considerably enlarge the club space, but also allow to create new situations for an interplay of guests and the fully updated works of art. The idea of the art exposition is such that no one would leave without ‘checking in’. Thatâs where the term ‘check in art’ comes in: each artwork is screaming out to be in the newsfeed of the guests. There will be works of young artists as well as of those, whose works are represented in the biggest museums of modern art. These are, for example, Andy Warhol parody portraits by the famous photographer David LaChapelle, works by George Condo and Damien Hurst, expressive paintings of Jonathan Meese, digital versions of landmark British artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster, artist Jenny Holzer world famous for her light installations and many others. A few objects are made specifically for the event, such are the video projection ‘Spider 2.0’ by Dmitriy Bulnygin and an installation ‘Apollo in sunglasses’ by the Russian digital art pioneers Electroboutique.”
