What? “Authorized for Export from the USSR…” Moscow nonconformist art from the collections of Ekaterina and Vladimir Semenikhin and private owners”

When? 22  June 2011–  2  October 2011

Where? The Cultural Foundation “Ekaterina”

GI comment: The exhibition is dedicated to one of the most interesting phenomena in the artistic life of Soviet Moscow that emerged in mid-1950s with the advent of the Khruches’ Thaw. The Moscow nonconformist art (for the fine art experts and critics also known as “second avant-garde”, “other art” or “underground art”) has become a socio-artistic trend that brought together a wide range of artists, who often had diametrically opposite creative credos. The exhibition will demonstrate about one hundred and fifty artworks: paintings and graphics. The main part of the exposition includes artworks from Ekaterina and Vladimir Semenikhin’s collection. Museums and private collectors are welcome to participate in the show.
