The Moscow Conceptual School in Context. A special adaptation for Calvert 22, presents specially selected artworks across a range of media, drawn mainly from the 1970s and ‘80s, and framed within an exhibition context that aims to better illuminate the principles and practice of this group. The works are drawn from an original exhibition (of the same title), presented at the Ekaterina Cultural Foundation in Moscow at the end of 2010 and selected for Calvert 22 by Elena Kuprina-Lyakhovich and Alexandra Danilova, curators of the Moscow presentation, along with UK independent curator, David Thorp.
