About me

Nadezhda Voronina, art expert

Nadezhda Voronina at work

I was born in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, where I studied arts and worked as a lecturer,  exhibition curator, art journalist and art critic. Since 2012 I leave in Munich.

In contemporary art my interest extends to the tradition and modernity synthesis process, as well as the evolution of art in the direction of its greater interaction with the audience. In my projects I am fоcused on the creative work of young artists.

I aim to continue conducting my own curatorial projects in future.
