Boris Mikhailov: A Retrospective
September 22, 2004 - January 2, 2005
Boris Mikhailov's images, captured over more than 35 years, bring to life one of the most tumultuous chapters of the 20th century: the height, decline, and fall of the Soviet Union and its disturbing aftermath. Yet as they chart this extraordinary history, they also express the complex emotions and intellectual subtlety of a powerful artist. The ICA presents Mikhailov's first retrospective in the United States, drawing on each of his most important series, including a variety of photographic media and techniques, and artist's books.The exhibition will present to American audiences for the first time this compelling and unique body of work.
The exhibition was organized by the FotoMuseum, Winterthur, Switzerland.
