Gary Tatintsian Gallery is proud to present a new project – the exhibition of three renowned American artists – Tony Matelli, Olaf Breuning and John Miller.
Each of them will unveil a new series of works which they created specially for this display. Each of the three follows his own manner and works in his own signature style.
What they all have in common is the subtle irony, a capacity for reflection, relevance of the subject and perfectionism.

Sculptures and installations by Olaf Breuning have become an essential part of urban landscape. The artist has participated in a large number of prestigious public projects, including City Hall Park exhibition “Lightness of Being” (2013), Happening of Station to station (2013), Miami Art Basel (2013).
Before the Moscow show, on March 4th 2014, New York’s Central Park hosted the installation of Breuning’s new sculpture group – “The Clouds”. The nearly 10-meter-tall sculpture is the artist’s largest open-air project so far.

John Miller is a member of the narrow circle of American conceptual art gurus, including Mike Kelley, Tony Oursler and Jim Shaw. His works have been on display in cities across the USA and in the rest of the world since the mid 1980s. Miller’s works embrace a wide variety of genres. In addition to paintings and sculptures, the artist excels in photography and video, has been monitoring a large number of projects and writes art reviews.
The gem of the exhibition is the so-called «gold» series – reliefs, sculptures, installations. On display are also the artist’s recent works on which he has been working since spring 2013. These include wall reliefs which imitate passers-by and transform the chamber exhibition space into a lively street.
In 2011 John Miller was awarded the The Wolfgang Hahn Prize (Museum Ludwig, Cologne). The former laureates of this prestigious award include Cindy Sherman, Christopher Wool, Mike Kelley, Pipilotti Rist, Richard Artschwager, Rosemarie Trockel, Peter Doig, etc.
T.Matelli – O.Breuning – J.Miller exhibition will be opened for the public from 21 March till 30 May 2014 during the Gallery’s working hours.
