Dreams For Those Who Are Awake

Dreams For Those Who Are Awake
MOSCOW  •  Moscow Museum of Modern Art  •  Ongoing

This exhibition consists of works with an ambivalent visual nature: each of them permitting dual, conflicting interpretations. The viewer is invited to confront the exhibits in a test of confidence and ponder, for instance, whether we should regard an ultra- realistic image as a harmless trick, if the laws of one-point perspective correspond to the natural conditions of human perception, or if itís possible to encode an image into text. Is it within the artistís power to capture something transcendent, lying beyond human experience? These and other subjects will be examined in the fourteen thematic sections of the display, devoted to the visual ontology and visual rhetoric of contemporary art. Each section will also include special items ó optical devices, scientific images and artifacts, ó meant to act as benchmarks of authenticity, as well as to extend the scope of the viewerís retinal impressions.

Among the featured artists are AES+F group, Nikita Alekseev, Sergey Bratkov, Ivan Chuikov, Francisco Infante, Georgy Kiesewalter, Vyacheslav Koleichuk, Elena Kovylina, Alexander Labas, Igor Makarevich, Taus Makhacheva, Rauf Mamedov, Vladislav Mamyshev-Monroe, Irina Nakhova, Ilya Kabakov, Alexey Kallima, Dmitri Prigov, George Pusenkoff, Alexander Rodchenko, Aidan Salakhova, Yuri Shabelnikov, Sergey Shutov, Leonid Sokov, Rostan Tavasiev, Dmitry Tsvetkov, Oleg Vasiliev.

The display also includes works created by invited artists Tatiana Akhmetgalieva, Marina Belova and Alexei Politov, Taisia Korotkova, the Mishmash Group, Haim Sokol, Larisa Zvezdochetova and others.
