About the event

Join Alyona Valerie Dybunova, Hunter College MA Program in Art History, in the James Gallery for a tour focusing on the power and weakness of art in the context of current political and economic changes in Russia. These changes—both products and consequences of certain moral beliefs and customs—form a narrative that fuels and activates the works of contemporary artists, including those in Specters of Communism. What does it mean for an artist in Russia to be politically engaged? How do we measure involvement? And who is the audience for these expressed concerns?
