Andrei Malakhov will hold MOST
The MOST auction changes itself up to the limit: firstly, the scene has changed. From the blessed walls of the Kovalenko museum auction moved to no less landmark – the center of modern art Typography. If you don’t know, then Typography has also recently transformed and now functions on Zipovskaya 5, building 33. Secondly, the place of the auctioneer will be taken by the famous collector and philanthropist, television journalist and producer Andrei Malakhov. For him, first of all, this is a gesture of support for Typography, an institution that is already known throughout Russia and is fueled by the expense of its patrons. This time, the organizers plan to transfer all the profits from the auction to the development of the Typography, and Andrei’s participation will be a strong contribution to the development of the Center. The organizers also foresaw the possibility to bid online. All participants must be registered on the website mosthave.ru.
The auction will be held on April 25 at 18:00.
Let us say a few words about the real heroes of the auction: Anna Andrzhievskaya, Lyudmila Baronina, Nalbi Bugashev, Alexander Dashevsky, ZIP Group, Ivan Korshunov, Anastasia Kuznetsova-Ruf, Vladimir Migachev, Ekaterina Muromtseva, Mayana Nasybullova, Ivan Seriy, Andrey Skripka, Recycle Group, and others.
