Velvet Terrorism: Pussy Riot’s Russia is on view at The Polygon March 22 – June 2.

Velvet Terrorism: Pussy Riot’s Russia is the first survey exhibition of the infamous feminist art collective Pussy Riot. Formed in Moscow in 2011, Pussy Riot came together in opposition to their country’s increasingly authoritarian government. The exhibition features vivid documentation of the group’s performances and street activism as assembled by member Maria (Masha) Alyokhina. Visitors encounter more than fifty courageous actions, and how Russia’s repressive state apparatus was turned into a “non-consensual” creative partner, boldly playing with fire.

Organized and toured by Kling & Bang, Reykjavik.

Created with Maria (Masha) Alyokhina in collaboration with Ingibjörg Sigurjónsdóttir and Ragnar Kjartansson.
