Video exhibit in Nizhny Novgorod showcases Ural artists
The exhibition, entitled "Art Residency," is largely comprised of footage from the 2012 Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art, where several visual artists-in-residence revealed their unique creative processes, The Calvert Journal reports.
"The main aim of ["Art Residency"] is to stimulate interest in Yekaterinburg because it's getting very important regionally in an artistic context," exhibition commissioner Alisa Prudnikova said, according to The Calvert Journal. "Our idea was to establish a program that gives artist the opportunity to work and tell a story related to the regions in this area."
Among Ural area artists featured in Art Residency are renowned street artist Timofei Radya and photographer Leonid Tishkov. Tishkov is best known for this "Private Moon" series, which depicts the moon resting on various surfaces on the Earth.
Aside from its video installations, Art Residency--which closes on April 20--will also feature a series of public seminars allowing artists and art appreciators alike to gather and discuss the cultural development within difference cities in the region.
"We're giving space for artists to tell their own stories of their perceptions of the city, from perceptions of the industrial parts of the town, to factory life-- the city environment or the urban fabric of the city," Prudnikova said, The Calvert Journal reports. "'Art Residency' tries to find ways to integrate art into everyday life."
