The artist and one of the organizers of the “Bulldozer exhibition” Oscar Rabin died at the age of 90 in Italy. It is reported TASS with reference to the official representative of the master Mark Ivasilevich.
Rabin died on the eve of the exhibition, which was held in the Russian Academy of arts in Florence. According to Vasilevich, upon arrival in the city, the artist became ill and had surgery, but was still full of creative ideas. Previously, he held an exhibition in Corsica, which covered the last four decades of his work.
The artist will be buried in the cemetery of Pere-Lachaise in Paris. The date of the ceremony will be announced later.
Rabin was born in 1928 in Moscow. In the late 50’s he founded the art group “Lianozovo” uniting the non-conformists. In 1974 the artist was one of the main organizers of the exhibition of unofficial art, which was dispersed with the help of bulldozers and watering machines, in connection with what has gone down in history as the “bulldozer exhibition”.
