November 6 at 7pm
With the Soviet Union gone and the concept of “unofficial art” formally extinct, there are no borders for the creativity of Russian contemporary artists. They are fully involved in the global process of contemporary art development. Video is a one of the main languages for artistic self-expression. For the new Russian “MTV generation” it is quite understandable and accessible form of art, and with time it’s becoming more and more popular.
The National Center for Contemporary Art in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia works with video art and video artists in its Arsenal space. This huge 5000-square meter former armory building has hosted dozens of Russian and international video art exhibitions and experimental films from 2003 through 2007. Many of them were made specifically for the Arsenal space.
In this screening you will see works of famous Russian video artists whose films were exhibited in Arsenal in the last few years.
