“Let the happy star shine in height” - they say that this is how the Chinese wish each other good luck in the new year. The theme of the new exhibition in the GUM-Red-Line Gallery is rather frivolous: an oriental horoscope. For the curator of the project, Elena Krylova, she became both a success and a challenge at the same time, for the artists she chose - a test of self-irony and testing of an artistic language.
The curator of the exhibition, Elena Krylova, has assembled a constellation of artists of her generation, whom she considers the present and future of Russian contemporary art: Lyudmila Baronina, Katya Belyavskaya, Alina Glazun, Ivan Gorshkov, Ksenia Dranysh, EliKuka, Julia Kartoshkina, Olga Kroytor, Romana Manikhina, Victoria Marchenavieva, Rosta Marchenko,, Ivan Tuzov, Sasha Frolov, Nick Chernyaev, Valery Chtak. Some of them still remain in the category of “young” (according to the accepted classification, the age of a young artist is up to 35 years), someone is in the middle of a career path, but they all confidently conquer the world. And she invited the master, seer and one of the most eloquent artists of our time - Pakhom to draw up a horoscope for the coming year of the Metal Rat.
The whole past year in the world, including the artistic one, much has been said about global problems and their difficult solutions. On the eve of the holidays, it would not hurt everyone to relax and dream a little. The horoscope exhibition is an excellent occasion to look at the present from a new angle, and with optimism - into the future.
