THE THEORY OF WAVES. PRODUCTION OF SPECTATORS
The Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val presents a group exhibition of young curators and Russian artists "The theory of waves. Production of spectators". The exhibition starts on the day of the city action "Night of the Arts", which will be held on November 4.
The exposition will feature video and photo art, installations and paintings by young artists.
Poetics of the sea and sea waves comes from the culture of romanticism, but in the twentieth century it becomes almost the main resource for describing economic processes, in particular, so-called "wave theories" of Ralph Elliot and Nikolai Kondratiev. The subjectivization of the elements in romanticism, connected with the idea of iberation and autonomy of the subject, in the culture of the twentieth century degenerated into the idea of ubjectivization of market mechanisms. Therefore, to describe, as well as illustrate crises in the economy, romantic motifs of storms and sea accidents are often exploited.
The project unites the work of contemporary Russian artists, and also includes an analytical part: reproductions of Aivazovsky's paintings are compared with infographic patterns illustrating the economic processes and photos of viewers who visited the Aivazovsky exhibition.
