“Pursuing a Ghost”: Illustrating the Russian Classics

September 30, 2019 - 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm (already occurred)
Center for Russian Culture, 202 Webster Hall

This exhibition takes as its starting point Oleg Vassiliev’s portfolio of lithographs “The House with a Mezzanine” (1991), which centers around the artist’s conversation across time with Anton Chekhov’s short story. The show examines the complex relationship in Russian culture between art and literature, the dynamic between image and text, and illustration and artistic freedom.
