Here Gallery Presents Solo Exhibition by Ester Petukhova this Summer

Posted on May 5, 2023

Curated by Sean Beauford, Ester Petukhova’s BFA 23 solo exhibition “If and When You Find Me” will take place at Here Gallery in Pittsburgh, July 7 – August 12. The exhibition attempts to organize a fractured and unreliable timeline of a “post-Soviet” nationhood. From maps and registration devices— to images clouded by the collapse of the USSR: the series of paintings search for the post-Soviet body through an asynchronous history.

With support from the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, the exhibition will also feature the release of a pocket-sized book. The book serves as a visual and autobiographical index, organizing a range of materials, images, and films collected over the course of the last year in relation to the works. The index also includes a selection of essays from post-Soviet Scholars and artist friends.
