“Up to Twelfth Generation” by Alexander Terebenin

Frants Gallery Space warmly invites you to attend the opening reception for “Up to Twelfth Generation” by Alexander Terebenin

Wednesday, June 20th
7:00pm-10:00pm

Frants Gallery Space
Rubinshteina 23 apt 39
St Petersburg, Russia

Up to Twelfth Generation

Photography of Alexander Terebenin is much like archeology, and his strolls though the city are akin to expeditions – inconspicuous; with neither fuss nor pose. The extraction is carried out openly, without gold miners’ sweat, pioneers’ vehemence or scientists’ zeal. Roaming round and about, melancholically dwelling here and now, the artist retains the time that flowed here and then.

Time is retained in things – shapes, surfaces, losses. In signs applied by people and half-obliterated by weather or adversity – or by repairs, senseless and merciless, much like weather and adversity. But also in signs applied by people and obliterated by people because they no longer think like this. Or because they do not think at all – it so happened.

Association of Galleries of Cutting-Edge Art


Official Press Release

Galleries of St. Petersburg, specializing in contemporary art, announced the establishment of the Association of Galleries of Cutting-Edge Art.

• Creation and development of a civilized art market in St. Petersburg.

Announcement of Events for the first half of 2011:

• January 22, 2011, “Opening Day” – united opening nights of all the member galleries of the Association. 8 exhibitions in St. Petersburg; an exhibition of artists of Sterligov’s school in New York. 9 member galleries of the Associations.
• Publication of a uniform guide for the galleries of contemporary art and its distribution through hotels, cultural institutions and recreational establishments.
• Conducting a roundtable discussion on the copyright issues.
• Holding a unified exhibition on the “side space” that would introduce artists and collections of the galleries.
• Night of the Galleries from June 17 to June 18, 2011.

“Opening Day” on January 22, 2011, Saturday. Opening Night: 5 PM – 10 PM.
