Overview of Exhibition
This exhibition is one of the first major surveys devoted to the wealth of exciting art being produced by a new generation of artists from Eastern Europe’s former communist countries. Many of these artists are in their thirties, and several are quickly becoming widely known after being featured in international biennials, art fairs, and museum exhibitions. Each was born under Communist rule but their art training occurred following the fall of Communism. Despite being internationally involved in the art world, these artists are devoted to living and maintaining studios in their home towns. Organized by the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in partnership with the KMA.
