Nikolay Alutin
projects, about

Nikolay Alutin is an independent curator and writer living in Moscow and Amsterdam. In parallel with independent practice he is currently the 2019/20 Curatorial Fellow at De Appel.

His theoretical research is concerned with art institutions in the process of implementing structural change and explores various roles both organisations and practitioners can adopt in policy-making for the cultural sector. His curatorial practice is focused on instabilities that allow for systemic alterations to take place within the art system and socio-political landscapes at large.

He has organised exhibitions in museums and art spaces independently and occasionally in collaboration with institutions such as Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the National Centre for Contemporary Arts Moscow, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and Spike Art Berlin, among others.

Nikolay Alutin holds an MA in Art History from the Russian State University for the Humanities, an MA in Languages of Mass Communication from the Ural Federal University and was a participant in the De Appel Curatorial Programme 2018/19.
