Varieties of Nonconformism: Unofficial Art from the Soviet Union

Amherst Center for Russian Culture

October 9, 2017 – February 11, 2018


This exhibition is devoted to work produced by the leading members of the Soviet nonconformist art movement.

The term “nonconformist art” refers to works by Soviet artists who rejected the state-prescribed style of Socialist Realism, creating their art with no regard for restrictions on subject matter or style. Emerging around 1956 and lasting through the late 1980s, nonconformist art encompassed a broad range of artists, united in their search for alternative means of artistic self-expression.
