Dreaming Russia: Works from The Gazprombank Collection

Dreaming Russia: Works from The Gazprombank Collection
VIENNA  •  Albertina  •  Ongoing

Our image of Russian art is still primarily influenced by its avant-garde. The reduction of the European view to this small section of Russian Modernity is explained by the extraordinary impact of the St. Petersburg-Petrograd art scene between 1910 and 1925.  

Thanks to a cooperation with Gazprombank, the Albertina presents examples of current work in Russia, which polymorphically serves all art forms: painting and photography, room installation, performance and sculpture.

Both in its conceptual approach and in its constructive spirit, recent Russian art is characterised by the consequences of what Stalin and his doctrine of socialist realism were only able to interrupt, but not exterminate.  

Participating artists whose works are on view:

Yuri Albert / Nikita Alexeev / Sergey Bratkov / Olga Chernysheva / Ivan Chuikov / Alexander Djikia / Daria Irincheeva / Irina Korina / Sergey Ogurtsov / Alexandra Paperno / Sergey Shestakov / Vadim Zakharov / Arseniy Zhilyaev
