The Foundation for Support of Contemporary Art Vinzavod donated the works of the artists participating in the anniversary cycle “Farewell to Eternal Youth” to the State Tretyakov Gallery.
The presentation of the works donated to the Gallery became the first part of the project “New Youth in the New Tretyakov Gallery. Donated by Vinzavod” that includes an extensive educational program featuring lectures, workshops, and events.
For the first time in Russia, the Museum of Classical Arts accepts a significant quantity of works by contemporary artists from one of the first private art centers in Russia. The event, timed to the 10th anniversary of Vinzavod, completes the 2017 anniversary program of the institution featuring a cycle of large-scale personal exhibitions the Russian new generation artists who changed their status from young talent to universally recognized ones. Among them, Dmitriy Venkov, Arseny Zhilyaev, Irina Korina, Egor Koshelev, Vladimir Logutov, Misha Most; Alexey Buldakov and Anastasia Potemkina (Urban fauna lab); Evgeny Granilshchikov, Eldar Ganeev, Yevgeny Rimkevich, the brothers Vasily and Stepan Subbotin (“ZIP” Group); Andrei Blokhin and Georgy Kuznetsov (“Recycle Group”).
Since April 19, the courtyard of the New Tretyakov Gallery has been transformed into an exhibition space. Here is the “ZIP” Group large-scale art object “Balance with a small error” is on show. The column-shaped monument to the abstract leader will become the dominant feature of the museum yard. Next to the statue on top of the column, a camera will be installed, broadcasting the exhibit onto the screen in the lobby of the museum. A “ruin” transformed into a bench for rest is endowed with multiple meanings: the trampling of an emblem of the former glory is combined with the romantic experiences of the greatness of the departed civilizations. In its work devoted to the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution, the “ZIP” Group demonstrates the chasm between the reality and the idea of a revolution, and shows the transformations of the regime thereafter. At the same time, a video installation about the works of the cycle “Farewell to Eternal Youth” will be demonstrated in the lobby of the New Tretyakov Gallery
