Igor Gusev. Transmuseum

Exhibition October 19 − December 2, 2018
Odessa artist and poet Igor Gusev presenting an exhibition project this fall."Transmuseum" in the Odessa Art Museum. His works, framed in antique frames, are placed among the main exhibits of the institution. Thus, visitors pass a kind of quest, looking for his paintings between the canvases of the usual exposure.

Works of art are transformed not only physically, exposed to the effects of time. Their meaning varies depending on the context, geography, development of the theory of art, philosophy. This is what Igor Gusev thinks about, which has evolved from the punk art of the new wave of the 1990s to the postromantic reflections of new means of expression.

Igor Gusev was born in 1970 in Odessa; in 1991, he graduated from the Odessa Art College named after M. Grekov. His works represent such auction houses as Sotheby's and Phillips de Pury, and exhibitions are held in London, New York, Vienna, Kotor, in Kiev "Art Arsenal" and in the National Art Museum of Ukraine.
