The exhibition “Yesterday, Today, Always” dedicated to the 5th birthday of Alina Pinsky Gallery has opened on 26th of April.
The works of the artists – Igor Chelkovski, Mikhail Chernishov, Francisco Infante, Vladimir Andreenkov, Tim Parchikov, Evgeny Muzalevsky, Dunya Zakharova, as well as a new artist in the gallery, Igor Skaletsky — are exhibited with the works from the gallery’s collection presented by Rimma Zanevskaya, Serge Charchoune, Claude Bellegarde, Edgar Gillet and others.
The anniversary exhibition “Yesterday, Today, Always” shows the works by the artists of several generations — both nonconformist artists, whose individual style was formed in a closed social and cultural environment, and new works by young artists, whose professional formation began in the conditions of multiculturalism, internationalism and free art market. The exposition in “white cube” allows the viewer to trace, if not the continuity of artistic traditions and ideas over the past fifty years, then their organic coexistence within a single cultural field. In addition, the exhibition presents works from the gallery’s collection such authors as Serge Charchoune, Claude Bellegarde, Edgar Gillet and others.
Different directions of Soviet nonconformism are represented by the works of Igor Chelkovski, Mikhail Chernishov, Francisco Infante and Nonna Goryunova, Rimma Zanevskaya, Vladimir Andreenkov.
These artists are the classics of Soviet unofficial art of the second half of the XXth century, and their artworks are in the collections of the Tretyakov Gallery, the Russian Museum, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Modern Art, the Ludwig Foundation in Vienna, the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Zimmerli Museum in New Jersey and other famous collections all around the world.
These artists are united by their passion for the ideas of the avant-garde and an analytical approach to constructing a composition on a plane.
