Artist Leonid Tishkov to talk about exhibit March 21

Artist Leonid Tishkov will discuss his solo exhibit "Look Homeword" during a lecture at the Yekaterinburg Fine Arts Museum at 4 p.m. March 21. 

The talk will focus on the creative process behind Tishkov's art, the role of memory in art, social anthropology, archiving the present and other issues that are often discussed with contemporary art.

Lately Tishkov has been engaged in discussions between avant-garde art and folk art. The dialogue between these two forces has resulted in some of his most recent projects: Ladomir Velimir Khlebnikov, Vyazanik and Kudymkar.

The exhibit will include architectural secrets from Kazimir Malevich, and creative objects similar to Protodabloidy and Dabloids. Tishkov will also describe his experiences when he created Abandoned Utopia in Verkhoturye.

After the lecture, Tishkov will host a tour of his exhibit.

Admission to the event is included with ticket purchases.

The Yekaterinburg Museum of Fine Arts is on Weiner Street, 11.
