Moscow Museum of Modern Art Presents Irina Nakhova "Rooms"


MOSCOW.- Moscow Museum of Modern Art presents Irina Nakhova – a special guest of the 4th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art – on view from May 19 through July 3, 2011. Irina Nakhova is considered to be an author of the first Russian “total installations”. Her artistic career is inherently linked to the Moscow Conceptualist circles. She has early recognized her mission as an artist. She has defined the existence of art as a vital necessity. “Only the bare-necessity approach to creating artworks made them living and full of not-for-consumption energy”, the artist says. This “maximalist approach” likens Nakhova’s art to the Russian avant-garde art of the 20 century. Artworks by Irina Nakhova are in the museum and private collections in France, Germany, UK, Italy, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland,
