An exhibit held at the Garage Museum in Moscow boasts a life-size authentic representation of Andy Warhol's studio from the 60s. The creative endeavor is a commentary on the anti-modernist manifesto, celebrating the first English translation of a text by Mikhail Lifshitz that took a stance against the 20th-century art movement. To help tell the story of 'The Crisis of Ugliness: From Cubism to Pop-Art,' curators Dmitry Gutov and David Riff recreated the artistic environment of the era by building a mock-up of Andy Warhol's studio, The Factory, and referencing notable creative minds like Roy Lichtenstein, Oleg Filatchev, Larisa Kirillova and more.
With the 'If Our Soup Can Could Speak: Mikhail Lifshitz and the Soviet Sixties' exhibit, the Garage Museum brings together two radically opposing views and gives the audience a chance to better understand the historic politics of art and culture.
