February 26 — April 18
The exhibition is part of the New Realisms Project.
The Avant-garde is synonymous with experimentation in art. In the Samara branch of the Tretyakov Gallery it is the main resource to facilitate the comprehension of the legacy of the past, and it helps to understand the present and outline prospects for the future.
The project includes two exhibitions, “Vanguard Detachment. 100 years of the Avant-garde in Samara” and “Artists at the Easel. Art after the Revolution”. They reveal to the general public the names of artists who worked during the transition between the Russian Avant-garde and Socialist Realism. Based on the collections of the State Tretyakov Gallery and the Samara Regional Art Museum, both exhibitions show a single vector of the artistic processes in Moscow and Samara.
The exhibition is dedicated to the searches of Soviet artists of the first decade of the Soviet system when art was faced with the issue of self-determination and the identification of itself as proletarian.
The core of the exposition is formed by the works of the Society of Easel Painters (abbreviated as OST in Russian) and the groups of the Projectionists, the Concretivists and others that preceded it (A. Deineka, K. Redko, S. Luchishkin, A. Labas, A. Tyshler and S. Nikritin).
The OST group was chosen as the most productive and significant association of artists that combined contemporary pictorial trends such as, for example, the reflection of photographic and cinema techniques, an appeal to the current social and scientific agenda and advanced theorizing. The work by these artists presents an outstanding example of a creative laboratory, and it was not once noted by their contemporaries.
