Polovtsian Dances by Nikolay Filatov at GUM-Red-Line Gallery

We are pleased to announce that the Polovtsian Dances exhibition by Nikolay Filatov has opened at GUM-Red-Line Gallery, Floor 3, Line 1.

The artist creates monumental paintings in the neo-expressionist style. His works are distinguished by expressivity and constructivism elements – symbols of the monumental archetype of avant-garde ideas in Russian culture. Russian cosmism, futurism, communism are presented as a single holistic image where the whole is valued more than the sum of its parts.

Through the title of the exhibition — Polovtsian Dances — the artist allows us to engage with a whole range of aesthetic and historical allusions that offer solutions for understanding both his newer works and his style in general.

Dancing figures appear in all periods of Nikolay Filatov’s creative work: they can be cubic and futuristic, expressively break apart into emotional brushstrokes, or, as is evident from contemporary pieces, paradoxically reveal depictions of human bodies presented in the style of antiquity while still reminding us of the subdued avant-garde dimensionality of the familiar Nikolay Filatov aesthetic.

Nikolay Filatov Bio:

Born in 1951 in Lvov. Graduated from the Lvov State Institute of Applied and Decorative Art (1977). In 1980-1981 studied at the Moscow State Academy of Arts and Industry. Since 1984 — a member of the Moscow branch of the Artists’ Union. In 1984 Nikolay Filatov together with Andrei Roiter and German Vinogradov established in a vacated kindergarten a unique Moscow underground artistic organization - Kindergarten, a community of like-minded people and an art squat. This place provided space for independent artists to engage with one another, as well as exhibit and store their art pieces. Surviving until 1986, Kindergarten was a legendary meeting place for many representatives of the avant-garde movement. Nikolay Filatov, as the creator of the movement’s ideology, did not strive to discover the “right” way of pushing forward avant-garde, but of displaying tolerance to any creative activities. Kindergarten was founded on the principles of freedom and diversity, which demand interaction between all art forms and ideas. Kindergarten provided an environment for open discussion, and it represented a conscious refusal to find the best position for the movement in the art world, as well as a lack of desire to follow the intellectual mainstream. Nikolay Filatov’s art embodies these notions as well.

Solo exhibitions of Nikolay Filatov were held at the Stella Art Gallery, Moscow (2006), Atelier Karas Gallery, Kiev, Ukraine (2004), Central House of Artists, Moscow (2003), Nancy Campbell & Hans Haacke, Stor, New York, USA (1992, 1993), 100 Profsoyuznaya St. Exhibition Hall, Moscow (1987), Apartment Exhibition at 28 Malaya Gruzinskaya, Moscow (1978). Pieces by Nikolay Filatov can be seen at the Ludwig Museum, Cologne (Germany), The Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, New Brunswick (USA), State Tretyakov Gallery (Moscow), State Russian Museum (Saint Petersburg).

The exhibition will close on October 25. Admission is free.

See you at GUM-Red-Line Gallery, Floor 3, Line 1, GUM.
