More on the event from intrepid organizer Phoenix Ivy:
"Rachel Zebro, art museum curator and art historyfaculty member, will provide an overview of the museum’s exhibition titled The Multiple Realities: Experimental Art in the Eastern Bloc, 1960s–1980s. This exhibition features nearly 100 artists from six Central-Eastern European nations, including East Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania, and Yugoslavia. Organized by the Walker Art Center, the exhibition features rarely seen and newly reconstructed works, tracing how a generation of artists with distinct experiences of locally specific state-sanctioned control embraced experimentation and interdisciplinary practices to confront at times harsh conditions of everyday life. The exhibition features rarely seen and newly reconstructed works, drawing on the visual arts, performance, music, and material culture to demonstrate the conceptual and formal innovation practiced by Eastern Bloc artists of the era, who were forced to negotiate and adapt their artistic practices within societies that enforced restrictions on how art could be produced, circulated, and received by the public."
