The Russians Are Coming to Evergreen House

A traveling exhibition, Modernism and Post- Modernism: Russian Art of the Ending Millennium, will open at Evergreen House on Friday, Nov. 10, with a reception from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The exhibition features 14 internationally known Russian-born contemporary artists: Yuri Albert, Andrej Barov, Vitaly Dlugy, Alexander Drewchin, Gena Glass, Komar & Melamid, Irina Nakhova, Natalya Nesterova, Michael Odnoralov, Haralampi G. Oroschakoff, Oscar Rabin, Ilya Shenker, and Vladimir Yankilevsky. The curator is Alexandre Gertsman, who also curated the exhibition Four Russian Messages at Evergreen House in 1994.

The paintings on exhibit reflect the changes and upheavals experienced by the Soviet and post-Soviet Russian society in the 20th century and offer insight into the direction Russian art will take in the 21st century. The different painting styles demonstrate the development of traditional modernism of the 20th century, beginning with Russia's avant-garde movement of the 1960s, to the eclecticism of present post-modern styles.

The opening reception, celebrating Evergreen's historical relationship with the Russian art community, will feature a performance at 7 p.m. by Igor Yuzefovich, winner of this year's Marbury Violin Competition at the Peabody Institute.

In conjunction with the exhibit, Mark Thistlethwaite, Cardin Chair of Humanities at Loyola College, will present a lecture, "Komar & Melamid: American Dreams and Other Weird and Wonderful Things," at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16, in Evergreen's Theatre. The exhibition will continue through Jan. 28, 2001. Evergreen House is located at 4545 N. Charles Street in Baltimore. For information, call 410-516-0341.
