A series of talks by Russian artists at The Saatchi Gallery over the course of 2019
All talks at 18.30 unless otherwise stated
Duke of York's HQ, King's Road
London SW3 4RY
Contemporary Russian artists talk about their art and the artistic context in Russia. Sponsored by the Hermitage Foundation UK and the IXcellerate Moscow Datacentre, the series opens with Vlad Kulkov on 30 January, followed by Asya Marakulina on 20 February and Ivan Plusch on 24 April.
The aim of the programme is to provide a platform for Russian artists who have growing careers in Russia, but are perhaps less well known in the UK, to discuss their work and bring it to a new audience. The artists have been chosen to reflect the breadth and diversity of contemporary art from Russia, including both established and emerging artists.
The series is the latest stage of an ongoing collaboration between the Hermitage Foundation UK and The Saatchi Gallery. The collaboration began in 2007 when the exhibition USA TODAY, featuring works by American artists from The Saatchi Gallery was shown at the State Hermitage Museum. This was followed by Newspeak: British Art Now. These exhibitions launched the Hermitage 20/21 Project, an initiative aimed at extending the State Hermitage Museum's collection in the 20th and 21st centuries.
Talks at 18.30 at The Saatchi Gallery, Duke of York’s HQ, Kings Road, London SW3 4RY
30 January Vlad Kulkov (with introduction by Dimitri Ozerkov)
20 February Asya Marakulina
24 April Ivan Plusch
