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.
