From September 2018, Garage Square is occupied by a newly commissioned, large-scale installation by Damián Ortega. His first solo presentation in Russia, The Modern Garden was a place for meeting and interpreting the various implications associated with the legacy of modernism, park sculptures, and the recyclable nature of materials.

Approaching the Museum from Garage Square, visitors see around thirty minimal, modernist sculptures. Ortega has taken various commercial logos and transformed them into three-dimensional objects made of plywood, concrete, and metal. Modernist-inspired graphic design is the perfect medium for conveying ideas of progress and new technology at the service of large companies and corporations. Ortega is interested in the transformation of modernist aesthetics—and of the modernist moral imperative—into an instrument.
