Curatorial tour and closing of GRAY CUBE exhibition

Ghenadie Popescu. The Ciorna River (2016)

Sunday, 8 October 2017, 17:00

The curator Kateryna Mishchenko will give a guided tour around Gray Cube exhibition at 17:00 (in English) and at 18:00 (in Ukrainian). The tour will be followed by a meeting with the artist Ghenadie Popescu (Moldova).

Exhibition Gray Cube focuses on the phenomenon of corruption, which is usually associated with political or sociological issues and has artistic potential. Paraphrasing, obscuring, allusions, creating secret sign systems – these forms of corrupt behavior can be perceived as artistic techniques that add fiction to the present, transforming the everyday into an absurd adventure. Placing themselves within a gray democracy and gray economy, artists examine the way the logic of corruption interweaves the social fabric. They make its anthropological, historical and aesthetic dimensions visible.
