Poland - Torun - CoCA - The Melancholy of Resistance08/11/2010
WORKS FROM THE COLLECTION OF THE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART ANTWERP
November 6, 2010 - January 30, 2011
The Melancholy of Resistance is the third foreign collection being presented at CoCA in Torun. It focuses on that part of the M HKA collection that is oriented towards Post-Soviet Art, basing on a selection of its works acquired in relation to the project Europe at Large and the formerly acquired works from Eastern Europe.
The Melancholy of Resistance exhibition constitutes an attempt to acknowledge the voices of various private mythologies. It presents a number of works by artists deriving from former Soviet Republics, such as Ukraine, Georgia, the Kyrgyz Republic, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. One of the inspirations for the exhibition's curators was the connection between music and social order, that has been thoroughly analised and developed by many artists.
