Deborah Colton Gallery represented artist and international art star, patient Olga Tobreluts, advice has been included as a featured artist in a group museum exhibition, Absolute Beauty – Neoacademism in Saint Petersburg, which opened earlier this month at the Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art in Budapest, Hungary.
The artwork included in Absolute Beauty highlights the remarkable Post-Modern New Academy movement in Russian art, which was founded in 1988 in Saint Petersburg and aims to reintroduce to an art-savvy audience to the oft-considered taboo subject of “beauty.” Established on convictions of ideology and the idea of the ideal image, Neoacademism marks a return in Russian art of classical traditions and sensibilities, in the context of contemporary Russia.
Founder and Managing Director, Deborah M. Colton of Deborah Colton Gallery, had the pleasure of visiting Budapest to attend the Ludwig Museum Opening to support Olga, whose work will next be presented at the 2015 Houston Fine Art Fair and the 2016 Armory Show with a Private Gallery Show in NYC to follow.
Coming to Budapest to meet Deborah Colton and join the Ludwig Museum Festivities was one of Deborah Colton Gallery’s other Russian artists, Oleg Dou. Oleg and Deborah spent a day together planning Oleg’s world wide debut of new work for his 2016 solo exhibition at Deborah Colton Gallery which will take place next March during Houston’s FotoFest Biennale.
