Generation of Thirty Years in Contemporary Russian Art

The State Russian Museum in the halls of the Marble Palace is holding an exhibition "Generation of Thirty Years in Contemporary Russian Art".

The exposition consists of works by more than 40 authors, performed in various techniques, which is largely due to the general interest of artists in experimenting with material. In addition to paintings, there will be presented: graphics, objects, sculpture, installations, video.

Among the project participants are Vladimir Abikh, Anna Andrzhievskaya, Tatiana Akhmetgalieva, Konstantin Benkovich, Stas Bags, Liza Bobkova, Sasha Braulov, Alexander Dashevsky, Daniil Vasiliev, Artur Dzharullaev, Marya Dmitrieva, Irina Drozd, Pyotr Dyakov, Sasha Zubritskaya, Maxim Ima Kosinskaya, Egor Kraft, Vlad Kulkov, Alexandra Lerman, Asya Marakulina, Misha Marker, Anna Martynenko, Semyon Motolyanets, Lera Nibiru, Alexandra Ominina, Polina Orlova, Denis Patrakeev, Pavel Pletnev, Ivan Plusch, Victoria Poviraeva, Pokras Lampas, Konstantin Reshetnikov, Maxim Svishchev, Nikita Seleznev, Marina Stakhieva, Alena Tereshko, Ivan Tuzov, Antonina Fatkhullina, Nestor Kharchenko, Fedor Hiroshige, Alexander Tsikarishvili, Leonid Tskhe, Nestor Engelke and others.

The exhibition, dedicated to the work of artists of the generation of thirty, is built on the material of St. Petersburg art. The authors of the project abandoned the strict age limit, using the concept associated with generational change. Millennials, or Generation Y, are those who were born between the 1980s and 1990s and entered the new millennium at a young age. The complexity of self-identification characteristic of this generation and close attention to the problem of self-presentation are reflected in the desire of the authors to speak more about their individual experience, about their fears, traumas or fantasy worlds.
