The Brotherhood of Free Culture: Recent Art from St. Petersburg, Russia
Marsh Art Gallery, University of Richmond Museums, VA
October 11 to December 15, 2002.
We are pleased to present this exhibition of recent art from St. Petersburg, Russia, created by artists from Pushkinskaya 10. Known as the Brotherhood of Free Culture, the society was formed in 1989 as a cultural center to promote nonconformist art (often referred to as underground art during the Soviet period) in contemporary Russia. In addition to organizing exhibitions and providing performance, museum , and gallery spaces, Pushkinskaya 10 offers studio space to forty performing and visual artists at any given time. This exhibition features seven of those artists.
The exhibition is made possible in part with the generous support of the University of Richmond Cultural Affairs Committee.
