Paintings of Russian Women

Marat Gelman continues to introduce Russian women and men with the artistic situation in Russian regions. The project Cultural Alliance has already represented the modern art of Kazakhstan, Perm and Izhevsk. Now, together with the Foundation of modern art support “Siberia”, Cultural Alliance presents an exhibition The United States of Siberia, which is going to continue till the 21st of April.

The name of the exhibition was inspired by the artwork of the conceptual painter from Omsk Damir Muratov, who created a hypothetical flag of Siberia that looks a lot like the American flag – stripy with the states-snowflakes. In his works (among which are Che Burashka and Mickey Mao) – Muratov is playing with the figures of mass culture and national myths. For this exhibition the artist prepared a new compilation “If they were born in Siberia” – a fantasy about an alternative life of the Hollywood stars.

The curator of the exhibition concluded: “The exhibition is about the way we live and solve the problems with an ironical smile. Lukily, there are no problems with one’s nationality. Both in Siberia and in the Ural region people are not divided by their nationality or at least don’t pay too much attention to it. This is probably due to very cold winters where the mutual survival is the most important. That’s why we always look at problems with a smile. Siberia – is freedom and happiness without boundaries. And the Siberian – it’s not a nationality but a state of mind and way of living.

Siberia is the heart of Russia, cold at first sight but very friendly and inviting once you get to know it. To completely understand your beautiful Russian girlfriend, we recommend starting the journey from the roots of her culture
