Nastia Khlestova is a contemporary art curator. She received her Master of Art History in the Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Art. The focus of her work is on the ways in which artist-run spaces in Ukraine and abroad function, the history of local art institutions, as well as emerging artists and their personal stories. Khlestova is curator and founder of the artist-run space 127 garage in Kharkiv, whose main goal is to create a community for interaction and supporting young artists.

The exhibition series "Beings & Creatures" continues with the second part. This chapter is dedicated to the kinship connections between life forms, human and otherwise, in the present and the past, sometimes long ago. The exhibited works by eleven artists and collectives deal with the cooperations and symbioses of organisms.

The network KULTUR INKLUSIV was founded by the Akademie Graz, the InTaKTFestival and the Kunstuniversität Graz within the framework of the Graz Year of Culture 2020 and has since been further developed together with other cultural and social institutions as well as with people with disabilities. KULTUR INKLUSIV is hosted by the Graz Museum this year.
