Russian Formalism Today
miami design district
This was the first of three exhibitions about Russian Contemporary art I organised in Miami during the ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH fair which attracts many tens of thousands international visitors.
For the first time ever, Russian art was represented by a special, separate project at Art Basel. This year, Samuel Keller, director of Art Basel, and Craig Robins, the famous collector of contemporary art, expressed their interest in the presence of contemporary Russian art in the show’s official program. The Russian project has been supported by Nic Iljine (director of corporate development in Europe and the Middle East, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation) and the Russian Ministry of Culture and Mass Communications.
