Many art historians and critics characterize artists of Sterligov’s school as “direct heirs of the Russian Avant-Garde”.  All the masters are pupils and followers of Vladimir STERLIGOV (1904-1973), a brilliant representative of the Russian Avant-Garde and a pupil of Kazimir Malevich.  In the early sixties and up until his death in 1973, a group of artists assembled around Sterligov and developed his creative principles.

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.

• ART re.FLEX Gallery
• Dmitriy Semenov Gallery
• Frants Gallery Space

The association’s chief mission is to unite efforts in the field of furthering contemporary art in St. Petersburg. Only an alliance of galleries is capable of meeting such challenges as:

• Adequate representation of a stratum of the cutting-edge art and its promotion outside the professional community;
• Active participation of St. Petersburg in the contemporary global art process not just as a “museum reliquary”, but also as one of the centers of cutting­edge art;
• Creation and development of a civilized art market in St. Petersburg.
