V-A-C Live returns to Whitechapel Gallery for the second year in their joint performance series with the world premier of a new performance by acclaimed mid career Russian artist Vadim Zakharov.
Renowned Russian artist Vadim Zakharov (b. 1959, Tajikistan) presents an evening of exhilarating and subversive performance taking inspiration from the book Incomplete & Utter History of Classical Music, by Stephen Fry. From composer Igor Stravinsky’s ballet Petrushka (1911) to Marcel Duchamp’s Bottle Rack (1914), Zakharov conceives a humorous journey across time and history, old and new, tradition and contemporaneity.
V-A-C Live is a performance led platform of the V-A-C Foundation.
