Walking a Fine Line - Russian Video Art @ Monkeytown Brooklyn

National Center for Contemporary Arts, Ekaterinburg branch in collaboration with International Fine Arts Consortium and Perpetual Art Machine (PAM)


Walking a Fine Line
Parables of the Sublime and the Subversive in Russian Video Art.

Curated by: Ksenia Fedorova and Alisa Prudnikova

January 9 (Friday), 7:30pm

Monkey Town:
58 N 3rd St. (btw. Kent & Wythe), Williamsburg, Brooklyn 11211

The program showcases the recent Russian video art works that reflect complex and controversial attitude towards the phenomenon of the sublime in Russian culture and mentality. Artists confront mystification and sacralization, engagement and spiritual detachment with strategies ranging from epatage to derision, eccentricity, and radical activism. Whom to blame? What to do? The viewer is invited to ponder upon these and other perennial “Russian” questions and find his/her own “fine line” of authentic response.
