IT. Irrational in late Soviet painting and applied art

The Museum and Exhibition Complex "Museum of Norilsk" invites you to the exhibition "IT. Irrational in late Soviet painting and applied art ".

The exposition features more than 80 works of applied art and painting from the collections of the Tsaritsyno Museum-Reserve and the Norilsk Museum.

"It" is a concept described by Sigmund Freud in the framework of his theory of psychoanalysis and popularized by Stephen King in the novel of the same name. "It" denotes that sphere of a person's mental life, which is only partly amenable to awareness and control, because its driving force is the drives that accumulate from early childhood and can manifest themselves in unexpected forms. The purpose of the exhibition is to demonstrate a number of artistic phenomena that do not lend themselves well to classification in the categories of Soviet aesthetics, but are revealed in the context of world postmodernism and trends in contemporary art.

Based on site materials MVK "Museum of Norilsk".
