New York Archive of Contemporary Russian Art

New York Archive of Contemporary Russian Art The New York Archive of Contemporary Russian Art (NYACRA) is a project in progress, fiscally sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA).

TBA. NYACRA is made possible through government, foundation, corporate and individual support, in large part via NYFA, a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization originally founded in 1971 by the New York State Council for the Arts (NYSCA) to serve individual artists throughout New York State. Since 2009, the mission of the fiscal sponsor NYFA expanded to include empowering emerging artists and arts organizations across all disciplines at critical stages with programs and services, throughout the United States and the international community.

Mission: NYACRA seeks to rescue, preserve & properly disseminate historically important records and works that are still insufficiently known to the global art world, partly as a result to the complex history of Russia, its defined borders, and those artists who resisted the Soviet Union's mandate of Socialist Realism and utilization of political influence in the arts. The western world's little knowledge of the work of such pioneering artists, is not only due to language barriers, but foreign policy of the Soviet regime. The very diverse Nonconformist & Contemporary works of artists that emerged from the late 1950's Soviet Union and whose creativity gave birth to artists of present-day Russian Federation, must include the vast Russian diaspora of emigre artists who either immigrated to the United States and other countries across the globe.

Ending in about 30 hours, the first Kickstarter for ARTENOL, the elite but visionary print art journal in full-color founded by Russian-American pioneer artist and living legend ALEXANDER MELAMID (formerly of Komar & Melamid).

In return for your support (any Mastercard, Amex, Visa will do - even из России), awards include rare signed die-cut art journals (the scarce 1st issue has an original cartoon by ART SPIEGELMAN!), 2-page article inclusion (to the editorial staff's reasonable discretion, obviously) - and - wait for it - original one-of-kind signed A. Melamid art for frankly a very modest donation (knowing it's much higher market value!) to this very worthy campaign.

Donations of any amount will graciously appreciated . Time is running out by the minutes!

'Rose on Pollock', a poignant work by Alexander Melamid, is still available.... Not for long!

Rather outside the specific scope of NYACRA's archive, but it will definitely stay. An absolutely fascinating February 1944 edition of an English-language art magazine, "The Studio"; this particular issue's theme was dedicated to "contemporary" Russian art & culture of the day.
