SIMON ROBERTS: Multimedia Museum, Moscow

Landscape Studies of a Small Island
April 25 – May 25, 2014

We are pleased to announce that Simon Roberts will be exhibiting at the Multimedia Museum in Moscow, as part of the UK Russia Year of Culture 2014. The exhibition has been curated by Karen McQuaid, Curator at The Photographer's Gallery, London. 

The exhibition draws on a selection of photographs from Roberts' We English and Pierdom series, exhibited at Klompching Gallery as solo shows in 2009 and 2013.

"With renewed interest in the relationship of individuals and groups to the landscape, Roberts focused on social practices, customs, cultural landmarks, economic and political scenarios that define his 'small island' as uniquely British. With echoes of 'history painting', these photographs point to contemporary issues specific to Britain, but equally engage with universal ideas of the human relationship to landscape, of identity and belonging".—Curatorial statement.
