Opening Reception – Art in Conflict
Saturday, March 17, 2018 from 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
Join us in celebrating the opening of Art in Conflict at The Museum of Russian Art with a reception in the galleries. A cash bar will be provided for your enjoyment.
Saturday, March 17th | 6:30-8:30pm
Art in Conflict presents approximately forty Soviet-era works drawn exclusively from the permanent collection of The Museum of Russian Art. Juxtaposing non-conformist and Socialist Realist approaches, the display unfolds conflicting perspectives that dominated the multifaceted and volatile art scene of the final Soviet decades. Arranged as a juxtaposition of oppositional and state-sanctioned models of artistic production, the display invites a creative interpretation of what it was to be a Soviet artist versus an artist living in the Soviet era. Also on view are three-dimensional artworks from the museum’s permanent collection.
