Click to enlargeDMITRI PRIGOV : THEATRE OF REVOLUTIONARY ACTION
Oct 13 - Dec 17, 2017
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.

POST-SOVIET VISIONS
Feb 23 - Apr 15, 2018
Post-Soviet Visions: image and identity in the new Eastern Europe is a group show of photography from the New East.
 
The exhibition explores new visual representations of lifestyle and landscape in Eastern Europe.
 
The exhibition gathers the work of a young generation of artists rising to prominence a quarter century after the end of Communism.
 
The photographers in Post-Soviet Visions come from Georgia, Germany, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
 
Instead of old binaries of East vs West, socialist vs capitalist, their images capture a generation shaped by issues that are personal rather than the political; by questions of sexuality, gender and style.
 
Participating artists: Armen Parsadanov, David Meskhi, Dima Komarov, Genia Volkov, Grigor Devejiev, Hassan Kurbanbaev, Ieva Raudsepa, Jędrzej Franek, Masha Demianova, Michal Korta, Patrick Bienert and Max von Gumppenberg, Paulina Korobkiewicz, Pavel Milyakov
