Museum of nonconformist art. Main hall
Vladimir Viderman. Abstract symbolism

Opening: November 17th at 5 PM
Curated by Sergei Kowalski

The exhibition presents art by Vladimir Viderman, who is a consistent adept of geometrical tradition in painting. He appeals to abstract symbols in his works. These symbols and signs generalized up to formulas, enforced by colour and tone contrasts are to impact on associative perception of the spectators. The surface is structurally divided into nano-elements that compose a single space fixed by geometry forms combination. Such composition design is unique.

Art-Ligue Gallery
Tatiana Baranova. Informal impressions

graphics / painting / sculpture
Opening: on the 17th of November at 6 PM
Curated by Julia Rybakova

The exhibition celebrates Tatiana Baranova' jubilee, it is retrospective qnd the works are not united by a single topic. They represent the living fabric of memories, impressions and images recorded by the hand of a professional artist. Tatiana's graphic and pictorial works demonstrate a wide range of stylistic and artistic decisions, but all of them are united by the recognizable style of the author.

These works are devoid of any pathos, and reflect reality in detail: whether it is a random ray of light, or fog rising over the roofs of the city. Our life consists precisely of these details that the artist bases her work on.

Sometimes the work is literally created by one or several lines, but this is done so accurately that there is no doubt about the author’s intention.

Tatiana Baranova sees the essence of things, its fundamental features. Perhaps that is why she is good at portraits. Many people know her ironic caricatures, but her sculpture works are a discovery for everyone. Her sculptures not only convey portrait likeness and carefully study the details, but also feature informal techniques that are unusual for academic school. This makes the portraits look alive.

Vera Solomonova. SPARKS

Opening: on the 17th of November at 4.45 PM
Curated by Kseniia Shapovalova

«Hi! My name is Vera. I was born and lived my whole life in Saint Petersburg. All of us sometimes feel the world in a very piercing manner. We are deeply overwhelmed by pain or happiness, sadness or, conversely, balance and depth. It’s those moments that stay in our memory. We will never reminisce over mundane but will readily look through the album of our “sparks”. They are all different, every one of us have their own. My sparks often turn into paintings. The unconscious forces itself onto canvas and only later do I understand what it was about.»
