  This Leads to Fire: Russian Art from Nonconformism to Global Capitalism, Selections from the Kolodzei Art Foundation Collection
September 14, 2014 - January 11, 2015
This Leads to Fire features selections from the Kolodzei Art Foundation, one of the most extensive collections of nonconformist and contemporary Russian art in the world. The exhibition includes works ranging from the 1950s through the period of Glasnost and contemporary art. It is organized into five parts that explore the origins of Nonconformist art, the developments of Moscow Conceptualism, Sots Art, the influence of the Russian avant-garde in geometric abstraction, and the coercive legacy of Socialist Realism. This Leads to Fire familiarizes viewers with an important and underappreciated body of work, but also demonstrates the challenges these artists still pose to both mainstream Russian culture and the globalized art world. The exhibition is curated by Sarah Warren, Associate Professor of Art History at Purchase College, the State University of New York and coordinated for the Neuberger Museum of Art by Patrice Giasson
