BEWARE, THE ARTIST!
Curator: Vera Lebedeva
Many, if not most of well-known Ural artists at a certain period of their lives had to support themselves by working “in the industry” – by stenciling technical data on manufactured products or creating posters like “Beware, Freight Traffic!” “POLE” gallery decided to organize an exhibition of artists who went through such an initiation at Ural plants. Painted artworks will be accompanied by photos, documents and written memoirs pertaining to the “factory period”. The works of “Kazimir Malevich House-Painter Brigade” (Gladyshev, Romanov, Razheva, Oborotistov et al.) will form the centerpiece of the exposition.
