Piter, Artistic Interpretations of the Cold War, 2016

Wende Museum and Archive of the Cold War, Los Angeles, California

Piter, locals name for the city, evoked Leningrad and emphasized the return to its historic, pre-revolutionary name 'Saint Petersburg' in 1991 during Glasnost and Perestroika. The exhibition included 10 large-scale prints, a video projection created from historic Soviet Union and American T.V. footage, and an interview with a Russian immigrant from Leningrad who relocated to Los Angeles in 1989. I selected radical Glasnost posters from the Wende Museum’s collection to juxtapose with my work.
