With a total area of 150 m2, the Pavilion is the largest building of the temporary structures on New Holland Island. It is outfitted with all the necessary equipment to accommodate a variety of events, including small-scale exhibitions, lectures, educational programs and other events. The Pavilion was designed by architect Sergey Bukin. The very first event it hosted was an exhibition of work by the recipients of the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art artist grants.
From April till October Pavilion on New Holland Island hosts Lecture Hall, a series of regular educational programs, spanning different areas of interest: from lectures in the social sciences, in collaboration with the Higher School of Economics in St Petersburg; to architecture-related offerings, in collaboration with the magazine Project Baltia; a film program; lessons in urban gardening from the organization, Dacha in the City; as well as a series of public talks on contemporary art and a literary club.
Lecture Hall was formulated to help bring high quality educational initiatives to a wider audience. The topics for the lectures have been specially selected to appeal to a broad range of ages and demographics. The lectures in this particular program will run on the island until October.
