The exhibition Andy Warhol and Russian Art revisits the work of one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, as well as interprets his work in terms of the influence exerted on famous Russian artists of several generations. The exposition will take the viewer along a route immersing in the atmosphere of the 60s-70s, filled with films and music of that time and all the attributes of pop art.

A research exhibition about one of the most important, striking figures in contemporary art – playful, harsh and soft light guides us through a maze of disco balls and pink fur: a story about Warhol’s work through TV, the prism of textures and light graphics.
Various techniques interact at the exhibition: from soft inconspicuous light protruding from the darkness to deliberately torn spots, from strict symmetry to game asymmetry, from cropped “TV” to multi-layered abstractions.

Each room on Warhol has its own character, and at the same time its own light that adjusts to it. We ended up with a whole library of techniques: for example, in the “How Andy Became Warhol” room with pink fur, we collected a volume from three shots – 1, framing the light on the exhibit; 2, flooding the background; 3, streaming, diverging like a gate, soft light on the fur. With this technique, we focus the attention of the observer at work, without losing the architecture of the space.

Hall “10 Other Jews”, which presents portraits of Jews with a dark reputation – we used oval spots and placed them not horizontally, unevenly, but at an angle. And this arrangement was extremely suitable for these works, made in a sweeping, free style – such a “ragged” light perfectly lay on the texture.
