Andrei Molodkin: CRUDE
January 26 through March 17, 2013
Andrei Molodkin is an internationally recognized contemporary Russian artist engaged in deconstructing the economic realities of geopolitical praxis. Consisting of his monumental ballpoint-pen drawings and his three-dimensional constructions filled with crude oil, Molodkin's exhibition "CRUDE" effectively articulates the space between people's peaceful, democratic aspirations and the unending conflicts perpetuated by oil-politics. "CRUDE" is a laboratory environment that radicalizes the dynamic between the artwork and the viewer.
Admission is free.
