Organizers: Andrej Pliasanau

The idea for this exhibition came from Andrej Pliasanau who commissioned independent painters (meaning not associated to the Artists’ Unions) to produce works on the theme of the “painter’s studio.” It was the first time that an exhibition of individual artists’ work from a private collection was organized. It included sixty-four artworks by thirty-nine artists, and was one of the first major group exhibitions of independent art. Approximately four hundred people attended the exhibition opening, and 150–200 viewers came to see the show in the following days.

Date: 22 December, 1987

Participants: Andrej Bialou, Sirhej Voichanka, Aliaksej Zhdanau, Aliadsander Zabauchyk, Ihar Kashkurevich, Artur Klinau, Todar Kopsha, Valery Pesin, Andrej Pliasanau, Ludmila Rusava, Uladzimir Tsesler

The big-scale exhibition has become a legend of the 1980s. It is believed to be a starting point in the history of Belarusian art. The opening of the exhibition was banned and the participants under the guidance of Andrej Pliasanau and Aliaksander Dabravolsky started a demonstration and protest action. They headed towards City’s Party Committee (Gorkom) carrying posters and paintings. As a result, they got permission to open the exhibition.
