The Moscow Museum of Modern Art and the pop/off/art gallery present Rostislav Lebedev’s exhibition “Rough cuts” - a new large-scale project by the classic of unofficial art.
In the project “Rough cuts”, Rostislav Lebedev remains true to his critical and ironic method of deconstructing artistic reality. Working with well-known images - images of world art or popular culture, avant-garde classics or Soviet symbols - Lebedev combines them in his works, discovering new meanings and forms of popular images.
The title of the exhibition “Rough cuts” refers to the artistic method of Rostislav Lebedev. Unlike many authors who use a barely noticeable, hidden “montage” of ready-made images, Lebedev prefers the sharp dissonance of images, a sharp transition from one sign to another. It is precisely such “rough cuts” that, according to the artist, are capable of carving new, fresh meanings from the simple fact of the meeting of two well-known images.
The exhibition of the project included more than 100 works - both already known works from museum and private collections, and new ones created specifically for the exhibition at MMOMA. The works will be presented in 9 halls, each of which addresses a specific artistic medium of Rostislav Lebedev. Among them, for example, adding a picture, text, volume or expressive gesture.
