Saatchi Gallery’s Art Riot exhibition extended until 7th January 2018
Saatchi Gallery’s blockbuster exhibition Art Riot: Post-Soviet Actionism has been extended until 7th January 2018.
The exhibition is dedicated to Russian protest art over the past 25 years, which coincided with the 100th anniversary of Russia’s October Revolution. Although the exhibition does not have any direct links to this historical event, many of the issues that artists face in post-communist Russia are comparable to those in 1917. These include, but are by no means limited to, problems of individual freedom in the face of both political ideology and also religion. The exhibition features such performance artists as Oleg Kulik, Pussy Riot, Pyotr Pavlensky, Blue Noses and some others and display various genres and types of protest art from posters and slogans to video art, staged photography and performances.
