Listen To Your Art

What Is Art?

Let’s face it- understanding contemporary art is not easy. We aim to introduce the world of private collections, commercial galleries, artist’s studios, museum and exhibition spaces to art neophytes.

What courses do we offer?

How to understand the 19th-century painting?

By studying eight iconic paintings from the 19th century in detail, you will find out how artists viewed history and contemporaneity, why they broke the rules of space and what symbols they used in their paintings.

Smart objects

The course invites the participant on an imaginary journey into cultural space, populated by objects created by humans: doors, windows, mirrors, etc. At the end of the journey, the listener would be able to pick out artist metaphors in painting and decipher literary symbols.

Major mind-blowing moments in the history of Western art

We introduce the history of European art with 24 greatest monuments. Those include paintings, sculptures, architectural monuments, as well as musical and literary masterpieces: from the Parthenon in Athens to the canvases of Pollock.

Types of Modern Art


Another uniquely Russian Modernist movement was Suprematism, started conjointly with Constructivism, though with a stronger emphasis and embracement of the abstraction capable by painting on a canvas.

De Stijl

The name De Stijl (Dutch for “The Style”) adequately sums up this movement’s aim while also characterizing their intentions on how to achieve that aim: with a simple, direct approach.


As one of the most famous art movements of the Modernist era, thanks mainly to the indelible work The Persistence of Memory (1931) by Salvador Dalí, Surrealism has come to be remembered for its production of visceral, eye-grabbing and aesthetic images.

How not to be afraid of contemporary art?

Develop your senses and keep an open mind

Though enjoying an artwork is an intuitive response, it is an ability that we need to train and develop to improve. Part of the reason why so many people struggle with it is due to the dated art education we receive.

Expose yourself to more art

If there is a silver lining, however, it’s that it is never too late to learn. And one way of doing so is just to go more often and increase your exposure to art.

Contemporary art is not trying to trick you

It is common for visitors to a contemporary art gallery to wonder if the objects on display are perpetrating some sort of hoax, or at least sharing an inside joke that the rest of us are not allowed to understand. Contemporary art is not trying to trick you. It’s time to leave that idea behind.
