Marginal Arts Ftstival

This year the MAF will host an exhibition of contemporary Russian & post-Soviet avant-garde art, literature & video at the LIMINAL: alternative artspace.

Representing the avant-garde communities associated with the journals 'Slova' ('Words'), Drugoe polusharie ('Another Hemisphere') and Chernovik ('Draft'), this exhibition will focus on the specifically anti-commercial segments of Russian avant-garde, a generation whose mentors were sent to prisons, work-camps and insane asylums for their work and who are now navigating the twin threats of a return of Totalitarianism and the Western-style commodification of culture.

Nonetheless, most of this work is not explicitly 'political'; instead it explores language, consciousness, and everyday life in a wide variety forms encompassing visual poetry, prints, paintings, asemia, short films, books, manifestos, and performance. The show is co-curated by Roanoke organiser Olchar Lindsann and Smolensk-based writer, theorist, and publisher Gleb Kolomiets, editor of Slova.

Artists and writers shown will include:
