DESCRIPTION

The exhibition will result from a comprehensive research work effectuated by Moscow Museum of Modern Art in collaboration with a renowned Russian curator Viktor Misiano. It is a major event, presenting one of the key lines in international art of the last decades — the so-called «Relational Art». This trend is highly recognized and actual today even though it is largely based on the traditions of both avant-garde art and European art of 1960ies and 70ies.

A number of leading artists in Relational art are participants in the «Impossible community» project: PawelAlthamer (Poland), Johanna Billing (Sweden), Jens Haaning (Denmark), Didier Courbot (France), Jeremy Deller (UK), Honored’O (Belguim), Carl Michael von Hausswolff (Sweden), Jeanne van Heeswijk (the Netherlands), Alberto Garutti (Italy), Joseph Grigely (the US), IRWIN (Slovenia), Suchan Kinoshita (Japan / Germany), Jiri Kovanda (Czech Republic), CesarePietroiusti (Italy), Shimabuku (Japan / Germany) et al.

Most of the artists have never been exhibited in Russia. That’s why Moscow Museum of Modern Art considers a task to acquaint general public with this art trend as a prior and of extreme important one.
