21 RUSSIA. Group exhibition of the contemporary Russian artists
17 January 2009 - 1 March 2009

21 RUSSIA, an exhibition of the contemporary Russian art of the post-millennium era, presents the works of art by twenty one artists created within the last eight years. The exposition includes the pieces by the artists not only from Moscow, but also from other Russian cities: St. Petersburgh, Novosibirsk, Samara and Nizhniy Novgorod. The exhibition that involves major video projects, paintings and installations, has been consciously built around the principle of comparison or even contrast - the young artists are presented alongside with the well-known names, the new works are placed next to the "tried and true" ones that already have been to a number of international shows. A significant peculiarity that sets this project apart is a reasoned curator's vision, i.e. to present Russia's contemporary art as a complex knot of collisions: collisions of trends, generations, media and themes...

Olexander Soloviov, project curator: "A selection of the Russian artists for our exhibition covers the period from 2000. Are there any particularities that distinguish a new Russian image in a chronological sequence of the earlier periods and what components this new identity is made of? These are the questions the PinchukArtCentre exposition should give the answers to, either directly or, at times, by means of mediation".
