Archstoyanie (Aрхстояние) 2013 is underway! Archstoyanie, a festival held in the small Russian village of Nikola-Lenivets (@nikolalenivets), has become one of the most important gatherings around Russian contemporary art today. As part of the kick-off, Archstoyanie held an InstaMeet led by Russian Instagammers @katia_mi and @russian_moscow.

The village boasts permanent, massive land sculptures that reflect the surrounding environment, and the festival also brings in new installations each year such as 2012’s "Fast Track" trampoline. This year’s festival features 13 projects that synthesize space and sound.
