PHOTOGRAPHS ARE A WAY OF IMPRISONING REALITY… ONE CAN’T POSSESS REALITY, ONE CAN POSSESS IMAGE — ONE CAN’T POSSESS THE PRESENT BUT ONE CAN POSSESS THE PAST. SUSAN SONTAG
IN RESIDENCE: FROM THE COLLECTION OF ZARYA CENTER FOR CONTEMPORARY ART
The Zarya Center for Contemporary Art will show a selection of works from its collection, built up over the past 5 years of the artist residency program.
Since the moment it launched in December 2014, the Zarya artist-in-residence program has welcomed artists from 17 countries to realize more than 80 proposals, dedicated to rethinking the local geopolitical, social and cultural landscape. On March 2, the Zarya Center for Contemporary Art will open the exhibition “IN RESIDENCE: From the Collection of Zarya Center for Contemporary Art,” which selects from the creative proposals and art works created by artists during their residencies.
The presentation of this collection results not only in the spectacular display of the results of five years of work, but also in a means to evaluate those results critically. The audience can get to know this portrait of Primorye, created by Russian and international artists alike, up until May 26.
