Curator-Led Tour for GARAGE Premium Cardholders, Art Lovers’ Circle and Garage Club Members

DESCRIPTION

Garage Museum of Contemporary Art is pleased to invite GARAGE Premium cardholders, Art Lovers’ Circle, and Garage Club members to a special curator-led tour of the Spring Exhibition Season. This Wednesday, the tour is run by Sasha Obukhova and Snejana Krasteva.

Garage cardholders will learn firsthand about three new exhibitions:

The project If our soup can could speak: Mikhail Lifshitz and the Soviet Sixties celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of The Crisis of Ugliness by Soviet philosopher and cultural theorist Mikhail Lifshitz. The exhibition, which looks at "art after art" features works by Albrecht Dürer, Roy Lichtenstein, Valery Khabarov, and Andy Warhol, as well as fragments of films and various archival materials.

The exhibition The Other Trans-Atlantic: Kinetic and Op Art in Eastern Europe and Latin America 1950s–1970s explores the artistic trends that developed in the cultural centers of Eastern Europe and Latin America parallel to abstract expressionism in the U.S. and lyrical abstraction in Europe.

Andro Wekua’s site-specific project Dolphin in the Fountain presents an illusory world woven of personal and collective memory and emotions.
