Exhibition of Taisia Korotkova
Saturday, April 16th
1 – 6 PM

ART MOSCOW and non-commercial exhibition of Taisia Korotkova, the Kandinsky Prize Winner 2010, invite you to a reception at colourblindGallery during Art Cologne 2011 in Germany.

In Reproduction series Taisia combines impressions on her recent stay in the hospital with imagery of recent technology for artificial insemination. Reproduction depicts the process of high-tech artificial child production in the contemporary world. In images she strips bare the intimate subject of child perception without any privacy by depicting the process as purely scientific and machine based. The anti-utopist Korotkova stresses that she recreates the already observed with sharper edges, however, the style reminds of optimistic illustrations of the 1960s with the cold pastel tones in tempera.

Korotkova paints modern icons in the technique of old icon painting with a dip of humanized social realist painting. In December 2010 Taisia received the Kandinsky Prize for two works from the Reproduction series. In 2011 Taisia Korotkova is invited to participate at the 4th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art.

ART MOSCOW is happy to invite you to the exhibition and reception and inform about the 15th International art fair in Moscow and art events in September 2011.

The visitor will have the opportunity to take a look at the electronic catalogue of Taisia Korotkova as well as the collection of electronic book on Russian contemporary art produced with support of the Foundation.

Art Moscow is particularly thankful for the cooperation with Alexander Solovey, the owner of colourblindGallery. ColourblindGallery is dedicated to show young contemporary artists from Eastern Europe and Russia.

Mondrian and De Stijl

Art | December 30, 2020

Holland at the beginning of the last century was the birthplace of a totally new form of art, an abstract art based on strict relations between rectangular forms, color planes, and straight lines. In October 1917, during the First World War, a group of young artists in neutral Holland joined forces to create a magazine. Called De Stijl, it presented and promoted this new, innovative art.

Sweet Land of Funk

Art | December 28, 2020

Sweet Land of Funk, currently on view on the third floor of the Museum's Katz Wing for Modern Art, explores the art movements of 1950s San Francisco. A survey of more than 20 works from the Museum's modern and contemporary art collections by Funk and figurative Bay Area artists, including Viola Frey, Jay DeFeo, Bruce Nauman, Richard Diebenkorn, and Manuel Neri, the special installation creates a sense of the City by the Bay, Oakland, Berkeley, and beyond during the storied period of Beat poets and bohemians, of Haight and "Howl," and of counter-culture that questioned conformity, ongoing military conflicts, the disparity of wealth, and other social issues that would fuel the revolution of the Baby Boomer generation.
