The large conceptual exhibition «Art about art» is dedicated to this topic. The exposition contains of 130 works of art: printmaking, painting, photo-art, electronic art, art-objects. For the first time the works of A. Mylnikov, R. Lihtenshtein, T. Novikov, V. Yakovlev, I. Kabakov, G. Korzhev, D. Zhilinskij, A Kosolapov take part together in one project. In these works of art the audience may find the ironical use of the known stories, stylistic and semantic allusions, quoting and open appropriation of the alien images, free «copies» of the works of art, that are made by other painters, endless serious and parody references to the history of art.
