Thanks for your comment, Joseph! I did not have the opportunity to visit Pushniskaya 10 on this trip; however, I have visited St. Petersburg twice before, in 2008 and 2009, when I did visit this art space. Based on that and my conversations with artists, the space has changed a lot over the years. It is not necessarily the same space as it was in the late and post-Soviet times, but it is still a center for art. Now there are so many newer art institutions--both official and start-up--in the city; yet Pushkinsaya 10 is legendary and will always be valuable for its historical contributions to nonconformist and post-Soviet art.
