Katya Bochavar сurated The Exhibition “Shalyapin KHMAT” for The Third Biennale of  Museum Design in Fedor Shalyapin Memorial Apartment: “KHMAT stands for the Art Interdisciplinary Anti-Theatre. Art – because the artist, in the broad sense of the word, is our major focal point. Interdisciplinary – because today the most interesting things happen in a context with blurred genre boundaries. Anti – for us it means not so much “against” as “vis-a-vis”. Theatre – because what is happening with the theatre today is unprecedented, it encapsulates all the most important things, also from the point of view of contemporary art”.
