The exposition presents the works by 7 artists of the same family: widely-known nonconformist artist Francisco Infante-Arana, his spouse Nonna Goryunova-Infante, their sons Paquito and Platon, also the spouse of Platon Daria Konovalova-Infante, and the grandsons of Francisco Seraphim and Tikhon.
Visitors are welcome to see photo art, graphic works and multimedia, created by the artists. In total, it’s more than 50 works from the collection of Natalia Opaleva — CEO of the AZ Museum, and also from the Infante family collection. The exhibition is displayed on all 4 floors of the Museum art space.
Natalia Opaleva, Executive Director of the AZ Museum:
“Family Values… First association is jewerly, gold and diamonds, silverware, antiquities… In the Infante family, the rarest, most valuable thing is inherited by younger family members — talent; mechanism of how it arises in one’s personality, or, more so, how and whether it could be inherited genetically, has not been really studied by genetics. Yet in case of the Infante family it is a fact: all of the members are talented”.
Polina Lobachevskaya, curator, art director of the AZ Museum:
“The exhibition “Family Values. Dance” displays art works by seven artists. It’s only a part of the diverse family of avant-guard artists bearing the Spanish surname Infante. Each of them, by learning from parents and imbuing with their artistic and aspiring spirit, succeed in creating something exclusively new. Any holiday in this family becomes an event in the world of the contemporary art. By the way, each member of the family dances really cool. Differently, odd. And all together.
