Long-distance relationship

Alex Buldakov, Consuelo Cavaniglia, Simon Hipgrave, Natalia Melikova, Sanja Pahoki, Yioryios

8 June - 2 July 2016
Opening Thursday June 9, 6-8pm


Iconic images from the early 20th century Russian avant-garde are continually appropriated, renegotiated and deconstructed in contemporary creative practice. This exhibition traces links and various disconnects between recent Australian and Russian art, and the revolutionary logic and geometric formalism of Suprematism and Constructivism. Video, photography, sculpture, print, and installation come together to present a distant and complex relationship shaped by layers of time, place, and interpretation. 

Curated by Andrée Ruggeri
