VLADIMIR YANKILEVSKY. MOMENT OF ETERNITY

12 july 2007—31 august 2007
Retrospective exhibition of Vladimir Yankilevsky?s work organized by the Ekaterina Cultural Foundation and the Russian Museum incorporates the works by the artist from the largest national and foreign museums and private collections. Vladimir Yankilevsky has a special place in the history of Russian art: he is a classic of the 1960s nonconformism. Yankilevsky had participated in the famous "Thirty Years of MOSKh" exhibition at the Manezh, contributed to the legendary magazine Knowledge is Power (Znanie — Sila), and was one of the Sretensky Boulevard artists. During that period, he formulated his main creative strategies underlying the structure of his works, his artistic concept that greatly influenced the whole generation of artists in the 1980s and '90s. Vladimir Yankilevsky was one of the first artists to conceive and place real objects in the painting?s space, adding a kind of topographical reality to the painting?s structure as well as creating object-installations. After the USSR had collapsed, he moved first to New York and then to Paris while continuing his creative search. He has become one of the few artists who managed to escape the limits of "unofficial Soviet art" to get integrated into the contemporary art context, working with Western and now also with Russian galleries, and taking part in major international exhibitions.
