Migration & Memory, Jewish Artists of the Russian and Soviet Empires
 

Migration & Memory, Jewish Artists of the Russian and Soviet Empires

Museum of Russian Icons

October 12, 2017 – January 28, 2018


Approximately 100 works drawn from the Vladimir and Vera Torchilin Collection that explore the creative responses as well as historical  trajectories of Jewish artists born, trained, or active in the Russian as well as Soviet Empires in the 20th century. The exhibit is structured around the themes of migration and memory that are central to the Jewish experience in this period. It is curated by Ballets Russes Arts Initiative’s Executive Director, Anna Winestein.

The works in the exhibition carry a complex legacy of opportunity and suffering, cooperation and hatred, inclusion and alienation. The opening of the show coincides closely with the centenary of the October Revolution of 1917, which transformed the landscape of choices and options for Russian Jewry, including artists, in many positive ways, while also bringing enormous displacement and violence. In total, it will present the creations of nearly 50 different artists.
