On September 18 and 19, a new project “Mimicry Systems” was inaugurated in the experimental space of the AZ Museum – AZ/ART, which consists of three exhibitions. The curator was the artist and art critic Alexander Dashevsky.
The first in the series is the exhibition “The eye that sees, that sees everything and that does not see”. It features works by Anatoly Zverev, Oleg Tselkov, Francisco Infante, Vladimir Yakovlev, Sergei Shutov, Anya Miroshnichenko, Denis Patrakeev, Tanya Raush, Andrey Rudiev, Vladimir Kozin, Nikolai Onishchenko and other artists.
The general director of the AZ Museum and AZ/ART, Natalia Opaleva, says: “The theme proposed by the project curator Alexander Dashevsky offers a wide field of reflection. Mimicry in nature is a protective property of living beings that adopt the color of the landscape to avoid being noticed by predators. In humans, mimicry is often associated with the need to adapt to the behavioral attitudes of a particular group in order to gain recognition or love. Mimicry has another important function: it facilitates social interaction and helps the emergence of friendship and other warm feelings.”
The opening was attended by Zelfira Tregulova, Olga Sviblova, Andrey Bartenev, Vladimir Ovcharenko, Anna Gvasalia-Ovcharenko, Ekaterina Kibovskaya, Irina Volskaya, Annushka and Pierre Brochet, Platon Infante and Daria Konovalova-Infante, Tatyana Nemirovskaya, Polina Favorskaya, Igor Chapurin and others representatives of art -spheres.
Let us remember that on October 6, the AZ Museum will open the exhibition “Sympathetic Interactions” in Ivanovo within the framework of the contemporary art festival “The First Avant-garde Factory.” The exhibition will include works by Mikhail Shemyakin, Oleg Tselkov, Francisco Infante, Vladislav Mamyshev-Monroe, Timofey Radi and other artists.
