New York Academy of Art
Mark Tansey and Peter Drake will participate in a talk in conjunction with the exhibition they co-curated, Figurative Diaspora. The show presents works of “unofficial art”—subversive, non-state sanctioned art—created by five Soviet artists and five contemporary Chinese artists. It is the first exhibition to trace the direct artistic influences of the USSR on the artists of the People’s Republic of China.
