Blavatsky Returns to Russia

“Madame Blavatsky” at the Hermitage

Mention was made of Goshka Macuga’s art piece “Madame Blavatsky.” It was recently displayed in the exhibition Newspeak: British Art Now from the Saatchi Gallery in London. The first part ran from October 29, 2009 to January 17, 2010, at the State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg, Russia.  According to the notice from the Hermitage, the exhibition features “some of the most exciting artists to have emerged in the UK in the last few years and are largely unknown in the wider art world.”  It is part of the Hermitage 20/21 project, which aims at “showcasing the best of contemporary art in the Hermitage and expanding the display of 20th century art.”  If you missed it at the Hermitage, the second part of the exhibition will be at the Saatchi Gallery in London, from June 2010 through January 2011.
