White Space Gallery presents Women at Work: Subverting the Feminine in Post-Soviet Russia, which brings the work of five women artists from the contemporary Russian art scene: Tatiana Antoshina, Vita Buivid, Olga Tobreluts, Gluklya, and Lera Nibiru.

About

The influence of Antoshina, Buivid, Tobreluts and Gluklya on Russian art since the 90s has been significant, reflected in their representation at numerous international biennales and solo shows at major museums, as well by their presence in exhibitions at White Space Gallery through the last decade. These more established figures are joined by Lera Nibiru, coming from a younger artistic generation, whose work will be shown for the first time at White Space Gallery.  Collectively, the artists presented in this exhibition offer an antonym to a dominant post-Soviet artistic landscape practically synonymous with its leading male figures. Their works provide us with an alternative narrative of contemporary Russian art, one rendered not in the image of man, but in the image of woman. One which intervenes in and adjudicates the new canon of contemporary Russian art.
