Click to enlargeTHE FUTURE IS CERTAIN; IT'S THE PAST WHICH IS UNPREDICTABLE
Jun 23 - Aug 20, 2017
A group show on writing and rewriting history.
 
"The future is certain", according to an old Soviet joke. "It's the past which is unpredictable."
 
This exhibition reflects on the ways history is written and the inevitability with which the past reasserts itself in the future.
 
Bringing together works from nine artists and collectives, The Future is Certain is an economy of ideas and artworks as well as historical facts and records that refuse to disappear on their own.
 
Participating artists and collectives: Felix Kalmenson, Jonas Mekas (in video conversation with Johnston Sheard and Justė Kostikovaitė), Deimantas Narkevičius, Emily Newman, Rather Than Happiness, Jura Shust, Slavs and Tatars, Emilija ¦karnulytė, Juan Pablo Villegas

DMITRI PRIGOV : THEATRE OF REVOLUTIONARY ACTION
Oct 13 - Dec 17, 2017 FINAL WEEK
Calvert 22 Foundation is pleased to announce the first posthumous solo presentation of Dmitri Prigov’s work in the UK.
 
Prigov (1940–2007) was one of the leading figures of Moscow Conceptualism and is known for his varied and prolific work as a poet, performer and artist using installation, video, typewritten books and other media.
 
The exhibition reflects on the different ways theatricality and performance influenced Prigov’s oeuvre, focusing primarily on his work after the fall of the Soviet Union.
 
Organised in collaboration with the State Hermitage Museum, the Hermitage Foundation UK and the Dimitri Prigov Foundation, the exhibition centres around an installation based on a drawing from the museum’s collection and uses performativity as a way of understanding Prigov’s works and the ironic mystical world they evoke.
