“Expanding the boundaries of creative gesture, consistently upholding the right to freedom of creativity in the context of daily, imperceptible control of power is the central thoroughfare that pervades the practice of Evgeny Pavlov since the early 1970s. Freedom Street tells the story of the artist’s reaction to the taboo in Soviet society, relations with the authorities, and a private lyrical world filled with dialogues with masters of world art. The exposition includes experiments by Evgeniy Pavlov on the border of different genres and techniques: photography, video, painting, happening, which were parallel to the world practices in contemporary art, ”says the curator of the exhibition, art critic Maria Vtorushina.
