Controversial musician to display paintings in Minsk

Controversial musician to display paintings in Minsk

The exhibition of Russian musician Sergey Shnurov will begin on December 1 and will last until mid-January 2018.  Sergei Shnurov not only makes controversial music, but he is also an artist. The exhibition will take place at the National Center for Contemporary Arts.

Officially, all this is called "Retrospective of Brand Realism". Brandrealism is a direction in art, which focuses not on real objects, but the structure of reality in which they are. Tickets are already on sale. The price is about $10. Remember that the exhibition is 18+.

Shnurov himself proclaimed brand realism in 2007.

Minsk will become the third city after Moscow and St. Petersburg where Shnurov will present his works. It is believed, with this artist and the Minsk public share mutual love. Shurov's concerts are sellouts, and the musician calls the Belarusian capital one of the most beloved cities. In a recent interview before a concert in Yekaterinburg, Shnurov was asked if he would like to leave Russia, and he suddenly mentioned Belarus capital Minsk.

- I'm a man of Russian culture, Russian language. All linguistic changes are important to me. I love St. Petersburg. In addition to it, I also like it in Minsk. People there are not spoiled, they are waiting for us very much.

A 50% discount will be valid upon presentation of a ticket to any of the concerts of the Leningrad band, where Shrurov is a frontman. One of these concerts was on March 19, 2017 and the other is due on December 1, 2017.
