http://www.d137.ru/?page_id=1232&lang=ru ). The « Freedom from actual» project is dedicated to fixation of perceptional changes of surrounding environment by contemporaries, who have lost their ability to understand and to receive the pleasure from contemplating an image.
D137 positions itself as a club that deals not only with «actual art», therefore the exhibition title is quite logical and for the archive part, telling about the D137 and the artists with whom the gallery worked. The archival part of the exhibition will feature works by famous artists and musicians who are prominent representatives of the generation of the 90s, as well as the video films «All About D137» and «Pirate Television» with the participation of Vladislav Mamyshev-Monroe.
