On 11 June the State Tretyakov Gallery opened a large-scale project ‘A Thing. A Space. A Person’. The exhibition is dedicated to the most important pages of Russian art history of the 1960s and beginning of the 2000s: from abstractions and kinetic experiments, which inherited the discoveries of the Russian avant-garde, emergence of a new language of reality reflection and pattern-objects by the founders of the Moscow conceptualism to the experimental projects and installations by the contemporary artists.
The exposition is not divided into traditional epochs or styles: the selection of works is determined by the underlying themes in the history of art — man, space and world.
More than 170 exhibits are on view: paintings, sculptures, installations and photographic series. Among them are works by Andrey Kuzkin and Haim Sokol from the collection of the Tretyakov Gallery.
Curators: Irina Gorlova and Igor Volkov.
The exhibition runs through 11 September 2022 at the New Tretyakov Gallery (10 Krymsky Val, West wing, 3rd floor, Halls 1-2).
