Lecture Cycle: Dissymmetrical Similarities

6 February – 3 July 2019


Touching upon surrealism and abstract expressionism, photography and its relationship with text, as well as many other subjects, Irina Kulik’s lecture cycle returns in the spring season.

Art historian Irina Kulik continues to discuss some of the most captivating stylistic and thematic influences between artists and art groups of different periods and movements of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Aimed at audiences of all backgrounds, the course remains equally engaging for amateurs and art connoisseurs.

Featured in the new season are Mexican artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, whose paintings continue to evoke as much interest as their passionate love life; a leading figure in the history of abstract expressionism Willem de Kooning; contemporary American female artist Taryn Simon who had a solo show at Garage in 2016; and many other names.

Acquainting the audience with completely new artists along with renowned masters, Irina Kulik’s lecture course is the best proof of contemporary art as an infinite source of unconventional interdisciplinary education.


Irina Kulik, PhD is an art critic, culture expert, lecturer at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), and author of numerous publications on contemporary art, cinema, and music.
