Russia’s main museum of contemporary art welcomes visitors to the grand exhibition of works by Rasheed Araeen, one of the pioneers of minimalism in art. Originally from Karachi (India), he gained popularity as a sculptor and painter in London. The retrospective presents both Araeen’s first works and his signature masterpieces with political undertones: this avant-garde painter explores postcolonial contexts and racism issues. Araeen’s works are displayed in Gorky Park’s three-storey soaring pavilion built by the outstanding Dutch architect Remment Koolhaas.© 2016-2019 moscovery.com
