Dmitri Prigov. Theatre of Revolutionary Action

Calvert 22 Foundation, 13 October – 17 December

The first posthumous solo exhibition in the UK exploring the mystical world of the genre-defying poet, artist, performer and leader of Moscow Conceptualism. In partnership with the State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg, the Hermitage Foundation UK and the Dmitri Prigov Foundation
Dmitri Prigov. Theatre of Revolutionary Action at Calvert 22 Space will reflect on the different ways theatricality and performance influenced Prigov’s oeuvre, focusing primarily on his work after the fall of the Soviet Union. Part of the The Future Remains: Revisiting Revolution season marking the centenary of 1917, the exhibition will look back on the Soviet experiment and the ways Prigov harnessed ideological, philosophical and mystical languages to address themes of chaos, change
and death.
