The Green Show
Dec 9 - Jan 20
A conceptual exhibition of paintings and sculpture from the Soviet Union exploring the socio-cultural significance of the color green as a paradigm of glasnost in Soviet life. The show, curated by art historian Margarita Tupitsyn, presented 21 Moscow artists, both established and emerging, many of whom have never exhibited in the U.S., who are pursuing similar theories in their work. Artists included were: Africa, Anufriev, Chuikov, Collective Actions, Fishkin, Gorokhovsky, Kabakov, Kozlov, Leiderman, Makarevich, Matrosov, Medical Hermeneutics, Nakhova, THe Peppers, Peppershtein, Pivovarov, Roiter, Voitsekhov, Volkov and Zaidel.
