The Project “INFORMBUREAU: modern russian art”
The Cultural Foundation “EKATERINA” is actively participating in projects and activities fostering modern Russian art. Within the frames of the 1st Moscow International Biennale of modern art the project “INFORMBUREAU: MODERN RUSSIAN ART” has been successfully realised in co-operation with the Foundation “Art Projects” and the E.K. ARTBUREAU. The aims and content of the Project are manifested in its title. The “INFORMBUREAU” stands for the information center collecting documents and materials (including video) dedicated to Russian painters of 1950 – 2000-es. These materials will enable the users to get an idea of a given painter’s work, as well as of different artistic trends and contemporary painting in general. Each file will include the painter’s complete biography, photocopied articles about their activities from catalogues, journals and newspapers, a selection of reproductions and video documentation.
