Russia: Significant Other
Russia as inspiration for the West, curated by Olga Kopenkina
The National Center for Contemporary Art at the Anna Akhmatova Museum, St. Petersburg
February 8th - March 3rd, 2006,
Works in exhibition Russia: Significant Other address the political utopias, myths, and traditions, which bound Russia and the West in different times of the history. They do not necessarily deal with the reality of Russia or its history, but they introduce the models of connecting with Russia as the Other -- through the artists' personal experiences, stories and investigations.
