Curated by Sara Raza, this presentation marks the artist’s third solo exhibition with Rossi & Rossi as well as the ten-year anniversary of the gallery’s engagement with both Meldibekov and Raza. Under the allegorical theme of ‘seasons’, the exhibition explores the artist’s ongoing inquiry into post-Soviet looping cycles of unprogressive political and social nostalgia associated with the terrain of Central Asiafollowing its 1991 independence from Soviet imperialism. Through his creative response to a changing and divided society, Meldibekov has earned a reputation as one of the region’s most esteemed artists. With his wry sense of humour and playful approach...
