ARNDT Berlin is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition featuring Erik Bulatov (born 1933 in Sverdlovsk, Russia). Please note that ARNDT Berlin will also be showing William Cordova (born 1971 in Lima, Peru) at the same time.
In celebration of his 80th birthday, ARNDT is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition presenting works by Erik Bulatov.
Erik Bulatov is one of the most important living artists from Russia and Eastern Europe. He numbers, along with Ilya Kabakov, among a small but significant group of Russian artists who, at a remove from the governmental regulations of the Soviet art system, attained completely independent forms of artistic expression.
The Nouveau Musée National de Monaco will honour the artist with a retrospective from June – October 2013.
His works have appeared in nearly every important exhibition on 20th century Russian art, including “RUSSIA!” at the Guggenheim Museums in New York (2005) and Bilbao (2006), and “Berlin-Moscow / Moscow-Berlin 1950–2000”, Tretyakow-Galerie, Moskau (2003), and Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin (2004), or „Traumfabrik Kommunismus. Die visuelle Kultur der Stalinzeit“, Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt / Main (2003).
He was also featured at the 43rd Venice Biennale (1988) and the Third Moscow Biennale (2009). His solo exhibitions have appeared at mamco – Musee d’art moderne et contemporain in Geneva (2009/2010) and at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2007), at the kestnergesellschaft, Hannover (2006), and the Tretyakow-Galerie, Moskau (2003 and 2006).
