A note on the organization of exhibitions in Moscow recently

Again it became difficult to show the work to the audience. I became less strong, my desires subsided, the Internet created an outlet - there I exhibit without problems. Exhibitions were more difficult to organize. If at all possible. I did not thoroughly study this question in view of the already mentioned shortage of power and the outlet of the Internet. Places where you can put pictures somehow strongly ordered, united in a hierarchy. The exhibition halls were united all over Moscow, Cultural centers by districts, libraries also subordinated. Several years ago it was possible to come to the director and within 15 minutes to negotiate an exhibition or get a refusal. In case of refusal, there was much more to go on. Now the application is reviewed once a year, and if the exhibition is denied, then there is nowhere to go. Directors were renamed into the managers and they began to live with an eye to the top. Although they are not like children, they understand things in their business. In short, places where a person beautify a place, rather than a  place beautify a person, are much cleaned up. In art there is the breath of life. But the official did a career, the art is the opposite. Even if he was taught, who was Malevich, who Leonardo da Vinci.

Of course, the artists are different too. But if each picture is for him some kind of discovery, or even a few, then the exhibition let fifty pictures have no chances. That none of the fifty ideas are not humbled by the authorities, who in turn have bosses, this is unlikely. Prohibit some work is also not with the hand. Censorship is as though canceled. So it's easier to dictate which exhibitions to organize rather than listen. But you can show attention. This is called crowdsourcing. A new word in Russian, taken from English, means the search for ideas from people. As if no one had ever tried to reach the authorities in his life.

I also want to say a few words about the terminology. In the circle of art critics, it is specific. About color, shape, texture and so on, i.e. how pictures are done, they can talk for a long time. It is more difficult to talk about what has been done. The word is not a sparrow, it will fly out - you will not catch it. They should not be wrong. Since I am engaged in semantic painting, I noticed that art critics dislike work with meaning. They use the word "literary" with contempt and do not condescend to a discussion. When they really can not brush it off, they use the word "concept". It is simply not in my power to explain what conceptual art means, it's easier to go, for example, to the Tretyakov Gallery on the Crimean shaft, there are such halls. And gasp from the impossibility to understand something. In everyday life the word "conception" means the main idea, essence, point of view. As for the paintings, I would define it as the ability to impress, look unusual, dumbfound, confuse. Well, for example, in some village in India, our conceptualists taught elephants to write flowers. The country people were happy - there were a lot of tourists.

It seems that semantic art does not exist at all. If someone talks about it, it's clear that he is not a professional. Sometimes I sent work abroad to exhibitions.. The accompanying questionnaire asked to specify a style. Semantic art is translated by the same concept. Maybe this word means something different there?

And with ordinary viewers, sometimes quite meaningful conversations happen. Glasnost, after all, exists. Why twitch?
