We are joined by Centrala Space and Dr Jakub Ceglarz (artist and researcher at the University of Birmingham) to better understand the level of inclusion and visibility of Russian, Central and Eastern European art and artists. Together we will use stories to help discuss and workshop barriers that young artists and their work can face while living and working in the UK.
Join us for an exclusive tour of our current exhibition ‘In Paradise’ with Margarita Gluzberg, the artist behind the show. We will explore the exhibition behind the scenes and engage with the new series of large-scale drawings, occupying the central space of Pushkin House, which the artist calls ‘cinema experiments’.
We will be exploring questions around the concept of modern Russian identity, how it has evolved and manifests in young people - especially those on the move and in between cultures. We will hear from our guest speaker, Nimasu Namsaren, and watch her award winning short film ‘Mavzhuda’ - a narrative on her experience with identity thought the lens of student film-making.
