Painter’s Studio – exhibition
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.
