In 1982 the gallery moved to its present building, formerly occupied by organs of the communist party of the Soviet Union. A part of the building is a monumental of architecture has been built in 1926 for the Siberian Revolution Commitee by an architect A.D.Kriachkov. Nowadays Novosibirsk Art Gallery is one of the most considerable art collections in Siberia.
Concept. The project focuses on videos and films dealing with various phenomena, peculiarities and problems of contemporary and temporary identities. Luca Curci’s International ArtExpo Group is a striking rhizomatic-nonaristotelian web, situated on the top of the active volcano of the contemporary thinking/identity. In a fractal world which generates fractal identities. TEMPORARY IDENTITIES. Temporary meanings. Temporary Gods. ArtExpo prefers shadow instead of black and white, flexibility and fluidity instead of fixation, fuzzy instead of certainty. Smile and laughter instead of hate. They know how to possess a MATRIOSHKA IDENTITY: to be focused on multiplicity and permanent change, the pilllars of our actual fuzzy world. They know that in the hard core of our identity we may ”read” the text of the infinity. They know that man’s life is a love story between the Self anf the Time. (Constantin Severin)
