Join us to celebrate the opening of Dmitri Prigov. Theatre of Revolutionary Action, the first posthumous solo exhibition in the UK exploring the mystical world of the genre-defying poet, artist, performer and leader of Moscow Conceptualism

The exhibition Dmitri Prigov. Theatre of Revolutionary Action at Calvert 22 Space will reflect on the different ways theatricality and performance influenced Prigov’s oeuvre, focusing primarily on his work after the fall of the Soviet Union. Part of the The Future Remains: Revisiting Revolution season at Calvert 22 Foundation marking the centenary of 1917, the exhibition will look back on the Soviet experiment and the ways Prigov harnessed ideological, philosophical and mystical languages to address themes of chaos, change and death.

Organised in collaboration with the State Hermitage Museum, the Hermitage Foundation UK and the Dimitri Prigov Foundation, the exhibition centres around an installation based on a drawing from the museum’s collection, Series with Brooms (2000s). The exhibition will use performativity as a way of understanding Prigov’s works and the ironic mystical world they evoke. The installation, realised in collaboration with Prigov’s son Andrei Prigov, will be in dialogue with other works including a number of the artist’s early typewritten concrete poems (recently acquired by Tate), video performances and rarely seen objects and drawings from the Prigov Foundation’s collection.

Curated by Elizaveta Butakova-Kilgarriff.
