Exhibition Subjective Visions: the Russian Outlook on the Contemporary Art
After the Viennese Kunsthistorisches Museum and the 53rd Venice Biennale, exhibition Subjective Visions with works from the collection of the Stella Art Foundation visits our country.
From September 19 through November 1, more than 45 works by Nikita Alexeyev, Yuri Avvakumov, Vagrich Bakhchanian, Olga Chernysheva, Michael Craig-Martin and many other world-known visual artists will be on view at the National Bank's Educational Foundation/Thessaloniki Cultural Center in the context of the program of the Second Contemporary Art Biennale of the Greek co-capital.
"A collection accumulates fragments of creative time, creating documentations of the past for the future, while curating plays with the poetic quality of both the ephemeral and the accidental, and thus brings the collection to life in the present, inducing the spectator-accomplice," writes Thalea Stefanidou, the exhibition curator.
Stella Art Foundation was established in November 2004 at the initiative of Stella Kesaeva, its main purposes include supporting cultural exchanges, promoting the work of Russian artists and opening a contemporary art museum in Moscow within the next 10 years.
The exhibition was organized in the context of the Moscow-Thessaloniki-2009 program, which is also expected to feature other cultural events.
