The Hillstrom Museum of Art at Gustavus will host two exhibitions that will run through Sunday, Nov. 9. “Forbidden Art: The Postwar Russian Avant-Garde” will be on display concurrently with “Selections from the Hillstrom Collection.” “Forbidden Art” includes 76 paintings, sculptures, photographs, works on paper, and mixed media works by more than 60 Soviet artists who worked outside the official Socialist Realism manner required by the Soviet state from the early 1930s through the late 1980s.
The concurrent exhibition of “Selections from the Hillstrom Collection” highlights works from the museum’s holdings.
