The Mikhail Roginsky Foundation in cooperation with Centre of Studies of Russian Art CSAR, Ca' Foscari University and with the support of IN ARTIBUS Foundation presents the exhibition "Mikhail Roginsky. Beyond the Red Door", which accompanies the 14th Architecture Biennale in Venice. The exhibition presents work fr om the artist’s mature period (1978-2003), following his emigration from Moscow to Paris in 1978, wh ere he remained until his death in 2004. The exhibition offers a unique perspective, since it is the first time that Roginsky’s Paris era is covered so extensively. The exhibition begins with Roginsky’s iconic "Red Door" (1965), the only Russian piece in the show. The other works present life literally and figuratively beyond this Red Door: the works by an exile artist who has broken through the iron curtain. In his Paris works, it appears as though a cloudy gray filter has been placed over a more brilliant color scheme. Resulting – despite the subdued colors and everyday themes – in a body of work that is unexpectedly arresting.
