Rostislav Lebedev. Between propaganda and frivolity

Winzavod Center for Contemporary Art and pop / off / art Gallery present an exhibition of contemporary art classics “Rostislav Lebedev. Between propaganda and frivolity ".

The gallery will become an installed space, the connecting element of which will be the "Power vertical", which has received its material embodiment from the artist. The famous saying in its history: "Who are you, cultural workers with?" He organizes the conceptual series of the master in a special way and sets the acute character of the current agenda. The new painting and objects will create a single statement that will become a logical continuation of the artistic rhetoric of Rostislav Lebedev.

"Between propaganda and frivolity" - a quote from the text "The Rebellious Man" by Albert Camus, a figurative description of the artist's position in conditions of constant choice and permanent search for something new. The concept of "propaganda" does not have a political meaning here, but rather becomes a method of artistic ideology, the purpose of which is to spread ideas and deepen knowledge. And frivolity is an autonomous gesture of the author, unaffected by the influence of the public or the professional community. The issue of freedom is the leitmotif of the art of Soviet underground artists of the second half of the 20th century, to whom, of course, one of the founders of Sots Art, Rostislav Lebedev, belongs.
