Cai Guo-Qiang: October

Exhibition / Russia
September 13, 2017 - December 11, 2017
The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts (12 Volkhonka, Moscow, Russia)

In September 2017, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts will present leading international contemporary artist Cai Guo-Qiang’s first solo exhibition in Russia: Cai Guo-Qiang: October. A reflection on the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, the ambitious body of work originally created for the exhibition will transform the main exhibition areas of the museum.

The exhibition is a comprehensive introduction of the artist’s diverse yet distinctive practice to the Russian art world and local audiences. Artworks include large-scale outdoor and indoor installations, gunpowder paintings, a multi-media video installation, and small-scale sculptures and sketches.

Cai Guo-Qiang received an ACC Fellowship in 1995 for an artist residency at the International Studio Program at the Institute of Contemporary Art, P.S. 1, in New York.

Grantee: Guo-Qiang Cai
