Join us for the preview of our new group exhibition, The Return of Memory as we unveil a new exhibition featuring work from a selection of artists curated by Anya Harrison, Sarah Perks and Olya Sova.
Unofficial histories, suppressed memories and strategies of resistance all converge in our new major group exhibition, which seeks to redress the legacy of the Russian Revolution on its centenary by exploring how contemporary artists are responding to the state of the ‘New East’ today. Rather than a nostalgic look at the past, new commissions and existing works re-activate and repurpose key emblems and stories of this past – from the avant-garde and revolution to the collapse of the Communist system and ideology – addressing key questions around the concept of The Return of Memory.
Performance / Join us at the preview for a special performance from exhibiting artist Aza Shadenova titled, Fit for one who sits and cries, for all communist parties – Aza’s tribute to the writing of the absurdist soviet writer Daniil Kharms. 18:30
