Spring is almost upon us, and the time for art is now!
- The Zimmerli Art Museum of Rutgers in New Brunswick, New Jersey is holding an exhibition “Tales of War: A Selection of Works on Paper” on war from the perspective of Russian artists. It runs till April 23. The centrepiece of the exhibition is a set of photomontages by Alexander Zhitomirsky (1907-1993).
- The Monterey Museum of Art (in California) holds an exhibition of the photographs of the Armenian-Canadian master Yousuf Karsh (1908-2002). (He’s not properly of the erstwhile Russian empire, because he grew up in Ottoman Turkey and emigrated to Canada after the tribulations of the Armenian pogroms of 1915.)
- We seem to be having a US-tilted roundup this month. The Marlborough Gallery in New York City holds an exhibition of the works of Grisha Bruskin (1945- ). The Wall Street Journal has a fine review. It runs till March 15.
