Close and Far: Russian Photography Now

  • 18 June — 17 August 2014 *on now

A new generation of photographers and video artists explore identity and place in early 21st century Russia alongside the rediscovered works of Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky, whose colour images of pre-revolutionary Russia are exhibited for the first time in the UK.
When Nicholas II, the last tsar, commissioned Prokudin-Gorsky to document his vast empire he presided over the largest territory in the world. Today, Russia is still a land of dramatic extremes. Where Prokudin-Gorsky witnessed the effects of colonisation and the stirrings of industrialisation, today’s artists work in the aftermath of the empire’s collapse, grappling both with its past and future.
Curated by Kate Bush.
