Boris Mikhailov has enjoyed ever-increasing recognition in the West over the past 10 years, but until recently went virtually unknown in his Russian/Ukrainian homeland. With the opening of the East in 1990, exhibition opportunities presented themselves, beginning with a solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tel Aviv that same year. Mikhailov has shown his extremely diverse bodies of work at the Rotterdam Biennale, the Kunsthalle Zurich, and most recently, he was awarded the first "General Satellite Corporation Art Prize for a contribution to the development of contemporary Russian art," a prestigious new Russian art prize. This retrospective covers the diverse landscape of Mikhailov's experimental, documentary based work methodically, but not tediously.
