Vladimir Nemukhin is considered a leader of the generation that initiated the unofficial art movement in the Soviet Union in the late 1950s. Rejecting the official doctrine of Socialist Realism – the art style based on Communist collective propaganda that was the only method permitted in the Soviet Union – the unofficial artists proclaimed an individual and independent approach to art that was concerned with universal values. Nemukhin’s work, predominately abstract and highly personal in style, often incorporates playing cards, symbols of fortune and destiny, which have become a readily distinguishable hallmark of the artist. The exhibition is rganized by Julia Tulovsky, Assistant Curator of Russian and Nonconformist Art from the Soviet Union.

A public reception for the exhibition takes place on December 1 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. A curator-led tour by Dr. Julia Tulovsky is available at 5:00 pm.

The exhibition and related programming is supported by the Avenir Foundation Endowment Fund.
