“… — and away, and near — // it was up to us. And what will happen after” exhibition
Collector’s Eye is an annual special project of Cosmoscow devoted to private collections. The exhibition stand of the project is an important part of the noncommercial program of the fair, and this year it hosted the exhibition “… — and away, and near — // it was up to us. And what will happen after” (a quote from Joseph Brodsky’s poem). The exhibition presented selected works from the collections of Sergey Limonov and Denis Khimilyayne, acquired by them after February 24. The project highlighted not only the artistic value of the works, but also the social significance of the practice of collecting as a form of support for the art system in its individual and institutional dimensions. The exhibition featured works by Yuri Albert, Rinat Voligamsi, Ivan Gorshkov, Varvara Grankova, Alexander Gronsky, Polina Kanis, Pyotr Kiryusha, Andrey Kuzkin, Vadim Mikhailov, Boris Sveshnikov, Vadim Sidur, Khaim Sokol and Olga Tatarintseva.
