Nikolay Alutin is an independent curator living and working between Moscow and Amsterdam. In parallel with independent practice he works as the 2019/20 Curatorial Fellow at De Appel.

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

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, De Appel and Spike Art Quarterly, 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.
