Kollektsia! Art contemporain en URSS et en Russie 1950 - 2000

Kollektsia! Art contemporain en URSS et en Russie 1950 - 2000

For the first time, the 450 works of the Centre Pompidou Russian art collection are gathered in a publication. 

Resulting from an exceptional donation, this collection is the most important outside of Russia. This corpus including paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings and videos, established by Olga Sviblova and Nicolas Liucci-Goutnikov, gives a complete overview of the history of Russian art from the second half of the 20th century by famous artists such as Ilya Kabakov and Oleg Koulik, as well as more confidential ones, from Sots art, Conceptualism, Necrorealism to Non-conformism movements. It demonstrates the specificity of this artistical scene formed on the fringes of official art and under-represented outside of Russia.

A first exhibition of these acquisitions organized by the Vladimir Potanin Foundation, entitled Kollektsia!, was presented at the Centre Pompidou in Paris from September 14, 2016 through April 2, 2017. The publication will be given to major French museums and libraries.
