CYLAND MediaArtLab is one of Russia’s most active New Media art noprofit organizations. CYLAND houses the largest archive of Eastern European video art online, organizes exhibits around the world and is the force behind CYBERFEST (Russia’s largest annual New Media art event.)

CYBERFEST (CYFEST) has been held across St Petersburg’s top art institutions: the State Hermitage Museum (Youth Educational Centre), the State Museum of the History of St. Petersburg, the Sergey Kuryokhin Modern Art Center, St. Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design (Museum of Applied Arts), the Russian Academy of Arts, Borey Gallery, the Gallery of Experimental Sound (the Museum of Sound) and Creative Space TKACHI.

CYLAND was cofounded by Marina Koldobskaya and Anna Frants.

Each year, CYFEST gathers more than 80 artists and art professionals to participate from more than 20 countries in live performance, sound art, video art, educational program (lectures, workshops, master classes).

Since 2016 I connected Cyland with the Biennial Environmental Art Festival SEMINARIA and I brought Donato Piccolo at 10° Cyfest in St Petersburg.
I will co-curate 11° CYFEST 2017 expected on June in the prestigious location of Reggia di Caserta (Italy).
