Erarta Galleries Zurich is honoured to open the summer season with Aleksandr Kosenkov’s solo exhibition titled “Farewell to the old world“. The evident theme running through the exhibition is that of nostalgia towards the simpler, bolder form and character, albeit depicted in an artistically flourished way. Kosenkov is known for creating a very specific and intimately subjective type of genre painting, in which the presence of characters, as well as the execution of content are physical manifestations of a personal commentary on nature.

Erarta Galleries Zurich is proud to present The New Russian Avant-Garde, its inaugural exhibition.
In '90's Russia, during the period of extreme social upheaval that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union, art was viewed as an instrument of social change. Finally, artists had in their hands the means to exert their will on the world around them, in the great tradition of historical revolution. This new art had political overtones and a radical aesthetic characterized by a taste for provocation and scandal. But this era of radicalism has ended. This is exemplified by Anatoly Osmolovsky's statement that Russian contemporary art has entered a new phase of evolution. The idea of artistic practice as a form of direct social change has given way to a more thoughtful approach that focuses on the work of art, reconsidering the legacy of modernism and its aesthetic ambitions of social renewal.
