White Space Gallery presents the work of five women artists from the contemporary Russian art scene: Tatiana Antoshina, Vita Buivid, Olga Tobreluts, Gluklya, and Lera Nibiru.
The show offers an antonym to a dominant post-Soviet artistic landscape practically synonymous with its leading male figures. The featured works provide us with an alternative narrative of contemporary Russian art, one rendered not in the image of man, but in the image of woman.
Each of the artists utilise various strategies of staging to establish a visual language which speaks to their subjective experiences as Russian women artists practising in the post-Soviet context. This, in fact, is the point of departure for Women at Work: Subverting the Feminine in Post-Soviet Russia, which seeks to emphasise the role of the artists as active agents in the Russian art context with the power to transform it.
The Exhibition runs from 13 July – 15 September 2018.
Summer Party: Friday 13 July, 18.00 – 22.00
