Olga Zaikina-Kondur and Aaron Ziolkowski (Ph.D. Candidates, Art History)
Recovering the Black Box is an exhibition dedicated to the Russian conceptual artist Andrei Monastyrsky. Art History Ph.D. candidates Olga Zaikina-Kondur and Aaron Ziolkowski will recreate eight of his sculptures produced between 1975 – 1983. Crafted from humble materials like shoeboxes and cardboard tubes, and painted matte black, these sculptures were completed and activated by individual audience participation.
