The selection explores aspects of spiritual expression in the Soviet Union and Russia from the 1960s to the present.
The title for the exhibition is derived from Wassily Kandinsky’s book Concerning the Spiritual in Art of 1911, one of the 20th centuries most influential books on art theory.
Featuring 70 works of art, including Anatolii Slepyshev, Francisco Infante, Valeri Pianov, Petr Pushkarev, Valentina Lebedeva and more, this exhibition explores the way many Soviet and Post-Soviet artists transcended the anti-religious stance of the government by basing their art upon forbidden religious themes. Touching on aspects of cultural tolerance and coexistence, as well as artistic and religious consciousness, this exhibition covers spiritual and religious themes in nonconformist and Post-Soviet art.
