Art Week NY: RUSSIAN PAVILION

reporter: Miguel Dominguez


On March 8th, The Russian Pavilion had a juried exhibition showcasing emerging and established artists from Russia, Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Baltic regions during leading international contemporary art fairs in New York, San Francisco and Miami. Russian Pavilion NY offered a unique forum for critics and collectors to encounter the works and some of the artists in person.

The timing of this exhibition coincided with the centennial of the 1913 New York Armory Show. The original exhibition was organized by a small group of artists and introduced the American public to European avant-garde painting and sculpture. The Russian Pavilion NY retains the spirit of the Armory show by continuing the introduction of international artists to the American public. It featured paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, photography, video installations and performances by artists whose achievements in traditional and new media made them internationally known.
