  • Victor Pivovarov Art Exhibition

    Viktor Pivovarov, born in 1937, was one of the leading artists of the Moscow Conceptualist artistic movement of the 1970s. His work reflected the complete ideology of the Soviet lifestyle, often simultaneously expressing criticism and nostalgia for this lifestyle.

    The exhibition of the Russian artist Viktor Pivovarov in Garage Museum of Contemporary art with Ekaterina Golovatyuk consists of 11 independent rooms, connected with regular openings. The uniformity of the wall material guarantees the continuity of the exhibition and the unity of architectural intervention. The exhibition does not hide the host building, but creates a dialogue with its architecture, and stands as a declared scenic design. The threshold device between rooms allows the perception of the hosting building and its materiality. The height of each room, 2.60mt, is constant all along the section and corresponds to the ceiling height of the apartments in Moscow in which the artist has designed his works and lived. From the outside of the Center for Contemporary Culture, the exhibition becomes a public green lamp that attracts the attention of Gorky park visitors.
