On 14 October Golubitskoe Art Foundation introduced a new participant of its residency programme – Anna Romanova, an art historian, independent curator, author of essays on contemporary art, theatre, and graphic design. Anna is a graduate of Russian State University for the Humanities; curator of Sobolevarchive, a research project dedicated to the artistic practice of Yuri Sobolev and the art of the second Russian avant-garde of the 1960–80s; guest professor at HSE University; and winner of the 10th All-Russian Contemporary Visual Art Competition Innovation in the Art Theory and Criticism category (2014).
At the Foundation’s invitation, Anna will be researching the subjects of landscape and territory in Soviet art. At her introductory lecture at the Typography Center for Contemporary Art in Krasnodar, Anna will talk about her most significant projects, for instance, the founding of the Department of Contemporary Art at the State Tretyakov Gallery and the very first school of contemporary art in the USSR near Leningrad.
