“For the Creative Contribution to the Development of Contemporary Art” Nomination

Erik Bulatov
Born in 1933 in Sverdlovsk; lives and works in Paris and Moscow
The art of Erik Bulatov prominently stands out in Russian contemporary culture. It is based on the strategies of radical painting that contains almost all forms of contemporary artistic practice. The artist’s picture evolves within the context of visual art, and becomes a special optical instrument that focuses on man’s place in history and culture. The use of text as image in the pictorial space allows Erik Bulatov to introduce his personal viewpoint in the structure of the work, comment on his own artistic production, and transform text symbols into exceptional visual statements.
Vitaly Patsyukov

 

“For the Support of Russian Contemporary Art” Nomination

Mikhail Prokhorov Fund
The creation of favorable conditions for the development of contemporary art has always been a priority
for Mikhail Prokhorov Fund. During the four years between 2005 and 2009, the Fund acted as the founder and organizer of the international festival of contemporary art “Taymyr Cactus” in the city of Norilsk. Since 2007, the Fund has been the general partner of the Krasnoyarsk Museum Biennale. The Fund has twice been the general partner of the Moscow International Biennale for Young Art.
The Fund sees the advancement Russian culture on the international scene and acquainting the international art community and western audiences with the most interesting representatives of Russian art as logical extension of their activities in the regions. The Fund supported the project “Victory over the Future” at the 53rd Venice Biennale for Contemporary Art and the exhibition “Dmitry Prigov” at the 54th Biennale in Venice. In 2010, during the cross-cultural year of Russia and France, the Fund organized a multimedia festival of contemporary Russian art in Lyon entitled “Unknown Siberia”. At the end of 2012, Mikhail Prokhorov Fund and Brooklyn Academy of Music (New York) announced a three-year program of cultural exchange, “TransCultural Express: American and Russian Arts Today.”
