Vladimir Nemukhin: Works on Paper

Vladimir Nemukhin: Untitled, 1967
Oct 09, 2010 - Mar 27, 2011
Dodge Wing Lower Level

Vladimir Nemukhin is considered a leader of the generation that initiated the unofficial art movement in the Soviet Union in the late 1950s. Rejecting the official doctrine of Socialist Realism—the art style based on Communist collective propaganda that was the only method permitted in the Soviet Union—the unofficial artists proclaimed an individual and independent approach to art that was concerned with universal values. Nemukhin’s work, predominantly abstract and highly personal in style, often incorporates playing cards, symbols of fortune and destiny, which have become a readily distinguishable hallmark of the artist.

Organized by Julia Tulovsky, Assistant Curator of Russian and Soviet Nonconformist Art

The exhibition and related programming is supported by the Avenir Foundation Endowment Fund.
