The founders of Sots Art Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid in MMOMA. This is the artists’ first retrospective in Russia. The exhibition includes works created by the artists as a tandem, which they now call ‘a character named ‘Komar & Melamid’. In its design the show resembles a collection of quotes — works and archival materials from the artists’ iconic projects. The famous Sots Art series, which gave birth to this movement, is reassembled as it was shown for the first time at a Moscow apartment exhibition in 1974. Occupying 16 halls on the second floor of the museum’s building at Petrovka 25, the show is divided into two sections presenting the artists’ Soviet and American periods.
