Slavs and Tatars

Founded in 2006, Slavs and Tatars is an international collective of artists, writers and designers and “a faction of polemics and intimacies devoted to an area east of the former Berlin Wall and west of the Great Wall of China known as Eurasia.” Initially focused on the production of print media and publications, Slavs and Tatars has exhibited widely with solo presentations having taken place in such international museums and institutions as the Neuer Aachener Kunstverein in Aachen, Germany; Kiosk, Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten in Ghent, Belgium; the Secession, Vienna, Austria; and, most recently at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The presentation of Friendship of Nations: Polish Shi’ite Showbiz at REDCAT marks the group’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles.
