Lecture Cycle: 1990s Year by Year


From 24 September 2013 to 26 November 2013


Garage Education Center


Sasha Obukhova, head of Garage research department, gives a retrospective series of lectures on the Russian art of the 1990s and Moscow artistic life year by year. 

The cycle is designed to accompany the Reconstruction exhibition based on unique materials from Garage archive and organized by Ekaterina Cultural Foundation. Art historian and curator Sasha Obukhova was personally involved in the groundbreaking events of the said period, so her story transcends dry critical analysis to provide a passionate commentary on the action captured on film by the author many years ago. Guest speakers include major figures of the 1990s artistic scene, from artists to gallery owners to curators. The lecture cycle consists of two chapters, the first part outlining the art of the 1990-1995 period and the second part examining the legacy of the late 1990s.
