Photo London Auditorium

The Russian documentary director, curator, art critic, founder of the Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow (formerly the Moscow House of Photography) has been commissioned by Photo London to present an exhibition from the Museum’s collection of Sergei Chilikov. It is Chilikov’s exhibition that Olga Sviblova will use as a launching point to speak about Russian Photography more generally. Olga Sviblova has long been considered a figurehead of photography in Russia and has become integral to its promotion abroad.

Olga Sviblova will be in conversation with Sarah Wilson, Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art. Wilson is an art historian and curator whose interests extend from post-war and Cold War Europe and the USSR to contemporary global art.
