Description Published on the occasion of the exhibition, "Obscure Object of Art: Contemporary Russian Art 1975-2007" at the Stella Art Foundation, Moscow. The exhibition presents 40 paintings, installations and sculptures by 17 contemporary Russian artists from the Stella Art Foundation collection. The show is built around Russian conceptual art, which has its roots in the Sots Art (Soviet pop art) movement of the 1970s that rebelled against official Soviet art. Among the artists in the show are Alexander Kosolapov, known for his paintings combining stereotypes of American and Soviet mass culture, the ideologies of capitalism and socialism; and Boris Orlov, who looks at power as embodied in imperial busts such as his armed "Sailor" (1975) on a pedestal.
