Sasha Obukhova: The Year of 1994

In 1994 the Moscow art scene saw the rise of Moscow Actionism, featuring Anatoly Osmolovsky and the Neceziudik group, Alexander Brener and the No Name group, Oleg Kulik, Oleg Mavromati, and the Absolute Love Sect collective.
This lecture also explores the financial aspect of the story. On the one hand, corporate collections were established during this period (including art collections by Inkombank, RINAKO Company, and others). On the other hand, Russian artists gained support from the charitable George Soros Center for Contemporary Art, which had recently opened in Moscow.

Admission is free.

Sasha Obukhova (born 1967) is an art historian and member of the Kandinsky Award expert board. She worked at Moscow Contemporary Art Institute, Tretyakov Gallery, and State Center for Contemporary Art. Since 2012 Sasha Obukhova has been heading Garage research department.
