This lecture focuses on the Soviet era, when artistic methods and topics were employed to shape the Soviet citizen. Artists experimented with these issues and forms to tell another story about their cultural environment. Veldman Rudie shares how these different streams provided a nuanced picture of artistic conflicts and visual interactions that were part of this period of art. The exhibition, Art in Conflict, is currently on view at the Tweed Museum of Art. It's a presentation of thirty-four paintings, sculptures, decorative art and works on paper, on loan from The Museum of Russian Art (TMORA) in Minneapolis, creating dialogues between nonconformist and state-sanctioned art during the final Soviet decades, from Stalin's death in 1953 to the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991.
Carol Veldman Rudie joins us at the Tweed Museum of Art on January 21 from 6-8 pm to present Art in Conflict: Themes and Styles in Soviet Arts. This is the first topic out of four that Veldman Rudie will present at the museum in conjunction with the current exhibition Art in Conflict. Free and open to the public.
