Nikolay Smirnov, Frame Curatorial Research fellow hosted by Casco Art Institute

The Frame Curatorial Research Fellowship is a four-year program for contemporary art curators initiated by Frame Contemporary Art Finland in close collaboration with international partners, including Casco Art Institute. Nikolay is one of the two fellows–along with another close collaborator and beloved artist Ama Josephine Budge–selected for the first two years of the program. For the coming two weeks he stays in the Netherlands for his research entitled “Eurasian Alchemy” which proposes alchemy as both the process and result of the transmutation of ideas, methods, concepts, practices and materials. Eurasia is understood here as a gigantic geopolitical, geoeconomic, and geocultural alchemical retort in which all these processes take place.
