Description

Sots Art Organized by Margarita Tupitsyn, guest curator Traveled to Glenbow Museum, Calgary, Ontario; Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, New York "The radicality of Sots Art went beyond its uniqueness in the context of strict Soviet restrictions on art production; rather, its critical importance lay in the fact that the Sots artists proposed to view Socialist Realism not as mere kitsch or as simply a vehicle for bureaucratic manipulation and state propaganda, but as a rich field of stereotypes and myths which they could transform into a new, contemporary language, one able to deconstruct official myths on their own terms."
