 Dmitry Alexandrovich Prigov. In dialogue with Avant-garde. On the 75th Anniversary of the Artist
23 october 2015—16 november 2015
The exhibition presents the oeuvre of the prominent Russian artist, one of the founders of the Moscow conceptualism, in aspect of the dialogue of this master with the Russian avant-garde. The exposition emphasizes the interconnection of Dmitry Prigov with the "Black Square" as the focus of Kazimir Malevich's searches in the sphere of conceptualism and its core terms ("Emptiness", "Nothing" and other) and also on the re-comprehension of the oeuvre of other artists of the early XXth century. The special section of the exhibition will bring together the works from the "Drawings on Reproductions" cycle, where the names of the avant-garde artists are juxtaposed to the classic works by masters of the Russian landscape painting of the XIXth century. The exhibition comprises around 200 works from the Prigov Foundation and collection of the State Russian museum and the State Hermitage.
