Yalta 1945 Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid

until 29 January 2017

Ben Uri, London


This is the first time the work has been presented in public since its display at  the Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York in 1990.

The 31 panel installation combines the work of Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid, who, perceived as two of the most important non-conformist artists rising from the Soviet Union, have made a name for themselves based on their radical amalgamation of Socialist Realism, Politicised Pop and Conceptual art.
