Realism Without Borders, an Exhibition
Exhibiting side by side, paintings by Soviet and contemporary Russian, American, Ukrainian, French and German artists, “Realism Without Borders” aims to connect two centuries and two continents via the commitment to realist painting traditions.
The show opens March 1 at the LCAD Gallery at One Laguna, 225 Forest Ave.
“We share an admiration of ‘realist’ art, especially Russian works, because they were the only ones to keep up the realist tradition when the world was going towards modernism,” says group curator Akhmed Salakhly.
