Bivins Gallery is pleased to present Soft Seduction, an exhibition of works by Moscow-based artists Lidia Vitkovskaya and Denis Mikhaylov. Inspired by Pablo Picasso’s belief that “it is your work in life that is the ultimate seduction,” the exhibition reflects the artists’ relationships with their own works and passions. Lidia and Denis explore seduction and emotional intellect in art and life, and the contrast between societal roles and individual passions. Lidia and Denis have exhibited at international art fairs and biennales all over the world, including the London Biennale, Florence Biennale, and Venice Biennale. In 2015, Denis was awarded the First Prize of the London Biennale, and Lidia received the Special Excellence Prize of the London Biennale. Both artists have been the subject of exhibitions at the State Hermitage Museum and the State Russian Museum in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
The opening reception for Soft Seduction will be held on May 18, 2018 from 5pm to 8pm at Bivins Gallery, where the artists will be in attendance from Moscow. Complimentary valet will be provided.
