ART4 will present paintings of two Russian artists - Vladimir Weisberg and Michael Roginskii at the fair Cosmoscow.
Vladimir Weisberg is one of those artists whose work can’t be understood in the historical context. He existed outside of it, he rather was entirely immersed into creative matters, search for the elusive edge of the moment when non-being becomes being after the paintbrush touches the canvas.
Michael Roginskii’s works finally speak up, not interrupted by the vanity of the historical context. Roginskii achieves the level of integrity and attains mastery which majority of his contemporaries could never reach. The level of set and solved problems impresses with its breadth and relevance. It brackets Michael Roginskii with the great masters of the past.
ART4 is the first Russian private museum of contemporary art. It was opened in 2007 and worked until 2009. For a few years it has been opened only on request four art exhibitions each month, showing the main players of Russian contemporary art scene and young artists. The collection of ART4 consists of major Russian artist’s works of the past 70 years: Ilya Kabakov, Eric Bulatov, Vladimir Nemukhin, Dmitry Prigov, Komar and Melamid, Vladislav Mamyshev-Monro, Oleg Kulik Anatoly Osmolovsky and 141 more.
