Table of Contents

Introduction

Tatiana Kolodzei started her collection forty five years ago. The joint collection of Tatiana Kolodzei and her daughter Natalia Kolodzei has now grown to seven thousand art objects, including paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, photography and video, by more then 300 artists from Russia and the Former Soviet Union. The Kolodzei Art Collection chronicles four decades of Russian and Soviet nonconformist art from the post-Stalinist era to the present. Tatiana Kolodzei organized many exhibitions in the former Soviet Union of works by nonconformist artists. She was one of the curators of the famous exhibition in September 1975, which took place in the House of Culture at the Exhibition of Economic Achievements.

In February 1991, with the support of American sponsors and admirers of the Kolodzei collection, Tatiana and Natalia Kolodzei established the Kolodzei Art Foundation for cultural, educational, and charitable purposes. The Foundation organizes non-profit exhibitions in museums and cultural centers in US and others countries, provides art supplies to Russian artists and sets up Russian-American cultural exchanges.

In the collection there are art works by such well known artists of the 1960's and 1970's as Ilya Kabakov, Komar and Melamid, Eduard Shteinberg, Vladimir Nemukhin, Pyotr Belenok, Eric Bulatov, Ivan Chuikov, Francisco Infante, Viacheslav Koleichuk, Bela Levikova, Mikhail Shvartsman, Oleg Vassiliev, Vladimir Yankilevsky, Leonid Lamm, Valeri Yurlov, Dmitri Krasnopevtsev, Tonys Vint, Rimma Gerlovina and Valeriy Gerlovin, and many others. There are artists of the 1980's and 1990's such as Andrei Budaev, Shimon Okshteyn, Farid Bogdalov, Olga Bulgakova, Valerii and Natasha Cherkashin, Genia Chef, Leonid Borisov, Andrei Karpov, Evgenii Gorokhovskii, Sergei Volokhov, Valery Koshlyakov, Sergei Mironenko, Andrei Filipov, Semen Agroskin, Mamut Churlu, Tatiana Antoshina, and others.
