Lecture Cycle: The Family Tree of Russian Contemporary Art

The Family Tree of Russian Contemporary Art
22 June – 18 September 2015
Fridays, 19:30–21:00 


This series of talks focuses on the key figures of Russian contemporary art from the 1950s to the present day featured in The Family Tree of Russian Contemporary Art. Each lecture is dedicated to an important artist or art group – all the faces of Russian contemporary art: Oskar Rabin and Mikhail Chernyshov, Ilya Kabakov, and Andrey Monastyrsky, Anatoly Osmolovsky, ESCAPE group, and others.

The Family Tree of Russian Contemporary Art is a long-term research initiative by Garage Archive Collection. It is intended as a framework through which to develop the yet-to-be-written history of Russian art from the mid 20th century on. The project consists of a series of closed-door roundtable discussions between specialists, an interactive installation and exhibition of documents, a program of public discussions and a screening program. Revealing the network of connections within the artistic community, the initiative pinpoints the key figures, events and phenomena of post-war art in Russia.
