The State Tretyakov Gallery in the halls of the New Tretyakov Gallery hosts an exhibition of the famous Moscow artist Nikolai Nasedkin“Oil: a personal story”.
The exposition presents panels and paintings by the artist, created with the help of an oil suspension.
Oil has become part of the artist’s personal history - for more than 20 years he has been creating paintings using oil suspensions. The main question of the project is whether it is possible to discern a personal history in the global history of the modern world. The exhibition includes: a series of large-scale "oil" panels and columns, a large object "Lightfall", as well as videos made in the genre of the artist's travel diary to his small homeland in search of relatives.
