Moscow Museum of Modern Art and curator Yekaterina Andreeva represent a large-scale retrospective exhibition of Timur Novikov (1958 — 2002), the most well-known Petersburg artist of the last third of the 20th — early 21st centuries.
Visitors can see his paintings, drawings, collages, panel pictures, videos, installations, and historical documents.
The exhibition is timed to the 55th anniversary since the artist’s birth and most fully represents his creativity and his life story. It is a story of incessant research quest, passion to art, twists of destiny and fidelity to the esthetic choice made very early in his life. It is a story of short and dramatic life of the ingenious artist who went blind at the age of 39 and, despite of the disease continued to be the leader of modern art.
The exhibition will run from March 19 to April 14, 2013.
