Contributions by Christian Keesee, Donald Kuspit, Andrew Solomon, and Jon Burris. This publication, printed for an exhibition of the same name, showcases thirty three painters who have chosen to remain in Russia and continue to explore their rich cultural heritage as unhindered members of the international scene. As the Keesee Collection demonstrates, the artists who have remained in Russia as tensions ease tend not to address the ever-changing political situation directly. Rather, their work expresses the new openness in Russian society with bold and often radical experimentation in both subject matter and style, as they “find their voices” in post-communist society.
