In conjunction with TMORA’s newly-revealed main gallery exhibition From Non-Conformism to Feminisms: Russian Women Artists from the Kolodzei Art Foundation, this presentation will highlight the development and accomplishments of women artists from Russia, emphasizing the importance of media experimentation for contemporary Russian women artists in defining their identity. It will explain the evolution of non-conformist and independent art in Russia tracing its development from Krushchev’s “Thaw” to the art of the post-Soviet decade and contemporary developments.
The Kolodzei Collection focuses on Russian alternative culture, born underground in opposition to the situation of the “closed” society during Soviet times. It bore a huge charge of internal energy, both protesting and guarding tradition. To collect art in the 1960s in the Soviet Union demanded not only a sharp eye, but also great courage. Tatiana Kolodzei managed to unite the best names of the Russian independent visual culture in the Kolodzei Collection.
Natalia Kolodzei is a curator, art historian and Executive Director of the Kolodzei Art Foundation. Together with her mother Tatiana Kolodzei, she is the owner of the Kolodzei Collection of Russian and Eastern European Art, containing over 7,000 pieces by over 300 artists from Russia and the former Soviet Union of the 20th and 21st centuries.
