Parallel program

The Parallel Program of Manifesta 10 is a curated series of independent events specifically devised for, or coinciding with, the dates of the Biennial. Initiated by Manifesta and realized in collaboration with The Hermitage Museum XXI Century Foundation, the Parallel Program aims to engage regional, national and international visitors to Manifesta 10 with a faceted view of the contemporary cultural situation in St. Petersburg.

In early 2014, Manifesta 10 invited individual artists and interdisciplinary cultural producers living and working in the St. Petersburg region, as well as local institutions, art organizations and other cultural projects, to propose projects for inclusion in the Parallel Program. Following the deliberations of a specially appointed jury, the network of selected projects will be communicated through the Parallel Program’s marketing and promotional material.

Information on the members of the jury and the announcement of the final list of contributors to the Parallel Program is posted online at
