Echoes of the Blast: Art, Faith and Culture 100 Years After the Revolution
Curated by Elena Sarni.
Please join us for the Opening Reception on November 29, from 6pm to 8pm.
The exhibition features works by some of the top contemporary artists to have emerged from the Russian cultural space that produced the Great Revolution, the most obviously colossal event in the history under consideration. They include:
Olga Nenazhivina, Oleg Vasiliev, Igor Tiulpanov, Elena Sarni, Konstantin Khudyakov, Vasily Kafanov, and Nikolai Mukhin
These are impressive and important artists, all of whom have achieved success in the US, too. It is a truly rare opportunity to see their works in one place. The artists present us with a dizzying, Tower-of-Babel variety of approaches, the very result to which the destruction of established paradigms might be expected to lead. And yet art is always an attempt to create structure from an infinity of possibilities, order out of chaos, to present a new paradigm on the shattered remains of the old ones.
Over the course of the exhibition, a series of talks, panel discussions, presentations and round- tables will be held on topics related to various aspects of the exhibition’s themes. Check the exhibition web page on the Causa Artium site and the Union Theological Seminary site for more details.
The exhibit will be open daily from 11/29- 12/24/2017 from 11 am- 8 pm
