London’s Saatchi Gallery is set to host an exhibition on Post-Soviet protest art over the past twenty five years. The exhibition will be focused on the challenges to individual freedom of expression and freedom of art and is set to be called “Art Riot: Post-Soviet Actionism”. The main idea behind the exhibition’s theme is founded on the notion that many of the problems that artists face in Russia today are comparable to those in 1917. Artists’ works that are set to be featured include those by Pussy Riot, Pyotr Pavlensky and Blue Noses Art Group. Visitors to the exhibition will also get the chance to get a better understanding of Pussy Riot through a theatre performance by Les Enfant Terribles, including performances by Pussy Riot member Nadya Tolokonnikova. The group are of course best known for their two-year imprisonment following their 2012 performance inside Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savior. The exhibition is set to open in London on November 16th. Image via Hero.
