Times of Change. Art of the 1960-85s in the Soviet Union

27 april 2006—30 october 2006
The large collection of the art of the 20th century stored in the Russian Museum helps to "reconstruct" the atmosphere of the artistic life of the 1960-80s within the frame of the Times of Change exhibition. On the one hand - the official art, in which the artists of the "harsh style" and representative of the generation of the 1970s rank first - Korzhev, Andronov, Nikonov, Moiseyenko, Zagonek and others. On the other hand - the art of club and apartment exhibitions of the "underground" represented in works by Arefiev, Weisberg, Rabine, Yankilevsky, Tselkov and others. Shots from photo and cinema chronicles, music, poetry and feature films of the 1960-80s will help to reconstruct the "image of the epoch" (on the analogy of such exhibitions as the Art of Stalin's Epoch and the Agitation for Happiness). The exposition will include more than 200 works from the Russian Museum collection, the Ludwig Museum in Aachen (Germany) and several private collections. The exhibition became possible with the contribution of the Ekaterina Cultural Foundation. The exhibition was curated by the Russian Museum in collaboration with the Ekaterina Cultural Foundation. The show included works from the collection of the Russian Museum, the Ekaterina Cultural Foundation and private collections
