25 Years of Angel Orensanz in Russia

 

Videos showing Angel's work spanning 25 years in Russia were displayed Monday Night.

On Monday, November 8, the Angel Orensanz Foundation proudly presented the second installment of The Annual Russian Art Festival. For this occasion, the Foundation showed a collection of videos synthesizing the last 25 years of sculptor Angel Orensanz’s involvement in Russia. The latest Soviet Period, the Perestroika and current Russian times showcasing his artistic activity are portrayed. The videos serve as a chronological overview of the latest history of this expansive country and Orensanz’s contribution to its art scene.

Angel Orensanz, educated in Barcelona and Paris, opened his studio in New York in the early 1980’s after working with several architects such as Marcel Breuer, Martin Gelber and John Portman. He has developed major installation concepts for environmental shows such as Holland Park, London; Red Square, Moscow; Roppongi-Park and Senso-ji, Tokyo; the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin; and ABC Playground (Houston St.), New York. Since the early 1990’s he has developed a prolific body of work in performance, conceptual art and video.
