Frozen Dreams: Contemporary Art from Russia

Серия: "-"

Frozen Dreams is the first comprehensive survey of contemporary art from Russia. Culturally and geographically thought of as part of Europe while at the same time a vast country stretching over nine time zones, Russia is a major world power with seemingly endless natural resources and undeniable political significance. How has Russia’s rapidly changing political and economic landscape shaped its art? And how does art affect social and cultural change within Russia?Russia has undergone an amazing cultural and political transformation over the past forty years. How has its rapidly changing social landscape shaped its art? And how does art effect social and cultural change within Russia? This generously illustrated volume explores these questions by presenting a broad but balanced selection of work by eighty Russian artists working from the 1970s to the present day. It features many newcomers within diverse media and styles, including Alexei Kallima, Kerim Ragimov and Olga Chernysheva alongside such well-established names as Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Eric Bulatov, Boris Mikhailov and AES+F. With more than 600 colour illustrations, perceptive interviews, in-depth profiles and three essays by leading scholars and collectors,«Frozen Dreams» will be an essential guide to a hitherto neglected area and an up-to-the-minute cultural portrait of an exciting artistic arena.
