Zimmerli Art Museum Presents Embodied Dreams: The Later Work of Boris Sveshnikov

The Zimmerli Art Museum presents Embodied Dreams: The Later Work of Boris Sveshnikov open through Apr 10, 2011.

This exhibition is the second part of a retrospective exhibition of Sveshnikov’s paintings and drawings from a span of over 30 years. Falsely accused of subversive activity while an art student in Moscow, Sveshnikov was sentenced to eight years in a Siberian labor camp. His life became a lesson in perseverance and survival. Whereas the first part of this exhibition presented works created during the artist’s internment, this installment centers on the art produced after his release and subsequent rehabilitation. The exhibition is organized by Allison Leigh-Perlman, a Dodge Lawrence Fellow at the Zimmerli.

A public reception for the exhibition takes place on December 1 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. A curator-led tour by Allison Leigh-Perlman is available at 5:30 pm.
