Osnova Gallery is a young and dynamic Moscow art space founded in 2014 that provides a vital platform for emerging and mid-career artists from countries worldwide. Osnova strives to bring new artist names to the forefront of the contemporary art scene, and engage extensively with the local community integrating it to the international art scene.
As part of Cosmoscow, the gallery displays a new project featuring such artists as Ian Ginsburg from Russia and Henning Strassburger from Germany. Each of these two young artists in their own way deconstructs and interprets artistic techniques of the 20th century, exploring their influence on contemporary artistic thought. Their work explores the possibilities of today's art practices and their place in the current visual continuum. Dealing with the art history in its expanded context, Ian Ginsburg, and Henning Strassburger raise the question of the impact of globalization on local art. Is there Russian, German, American art these days and where the line between them can be drawn? The answer can be found in the parallels provided by the works of young artists.
Artists presented at Cosmoscow 2018: Ian Ginsburg, Henning Strassburger.
