Calvert 22 is pleased to present highlights from the Innovation Prize, the official state award for contemporary visual arts in Russia. Best described as the Turner prize of Russian art, this is the first time art from the Innovation Prize has been shown outside Russia. The exhibition will showcase a range of work by both nominated and winning artists from the last seven years, including some of the most innovative and exciting artists working in Russia today across a variety of media. Photography, video and performance are seen alongside works on paper, sculptural objects and installations.
The exhibition, organised to coincide with the London 2012 Summer Olympics, serves as an important and timely survey conveying a sense of Russia’s current artistic practice.
This exhibition has been organised by the NCCA under support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.
