Marat Gelman gallery

19 October - 31 December 2000
Marble Palace

The Marat Gelman Gallery shows the South Russian Wave, Poor Art and Nostalgia exhibitions within the framework of the Art Against Geography project. The current shows are part of the seven-exhibition series held at the Ludwig Museum in the Marble Palace. The Art Against Geography project will spend three years touring regional art museums. The project introduces the collection of Marat Gelman, which contains the works of the leading Russian artists of the 1990s. Over the ten years of its existence, the Marat Gelman Gallery has not only managed to survive; it has put together an outstanding collection of contemporary art, becoming a major factor in modern Russian art. The Marat Gelman Gallery exhibition at the Russian Museum reflects the importance and topicality of the gallery's activities on behalf of the country's leading museum, which has for many years now given wide support to modern art. The display of the gallery's activities in Russia reveals new aspects of its penetration into the art process as such and provides the Russian Museum with a reciprocal artist-viewer-critic-public relationship, reflecting the gallery's contributions to the general cultural process.
