Harriman Institute Atrium, 12th Floor International Affairs Building (420 W 118th St)
The Harriman Institute and the Russian American Cultural Center (RACC) present an exhibition curated by Regina Khidekel. Many Russian émigré artists have invigorated the New York art scene over the past three decades. The '90s was a particularly vibrant decade for integration and the search for relevance in the realm of contemporary art and critical discourse, areas that had been lacking in Russia during the post-Soviet transition. This exhibition aims to revitalize the history of Russian artists in New York during the 1990s and early 2000s.
