"The Sretensky Boulevard Group"
Sasha Obukhova will talk about one of the most interesting phenomena of Soviet Nonconformism - The Sretensky Boulevard Group, an informal association of artists which formed in the 1960s by Yuri Sobolev-Noleva, a talented organizer, art theorist and artist. The group consisted of Ilya Kabakov, Hulot Sooster, Ernst Neizvestny, Eric Bulatov, Oleg Vasiliev, Vladimir Yankilevsky, Viktor Pivovarov and Ivan Chuikov. The sixth lecture of the course will tell of what united the group members in addition to the geography (there were quite a lot of studios of unofficial artist in the vicinity of Sretensky Boulevard).
