An artist lecture tonight at 5pm following the gallery opening will discuss a series of photographic projects completed in Russia and Ukraine between 2004 and 2014 that focus on the slow dissolution of Soviet consciousness, the ideological vacuum left in its wake, and the reconstitution of new post-Soviet Ukraine and Russian Identities.
