14 october 2009—10 november 2009

Eugene Abezgauz was born in 1939 in Leningrad. In 1973 he graduated the Leningrad Vera Muhina College for Industrial Design with the painter-designer qualification. At the end of 1976 Abezgauz emigrated to Israel - the documations for emigration were given up in 1972, but only in 1976 his activity as the nonconform-painter was the impuls for the government to give him the permission for the emigration.

The exhibition activity of Abezgauz envelop hundreds of expositions: from the small apartment-exhibitions of the Leningrad underground to such final historic expositions as "From Gulag to Glasnost. Nonconformist Art of the Soviet Union" (The Art Museum of the Simmerli University Rutgers, New Jersy, 1995) and "Russian-Jewish painters in the century of changes. 1890-1990" (Jewish museum, New York, 1995). Abezgauz is known as the founder of the "Alef" group. Its members declared the disagreement with the late Soviet art and national policy.
