Alexey Titarenko

Alexey Titarenko received his M.F.A. from the Department of Cinematic and Photographic Art at Leningrad’s Institute of Culture in 1983. In 1978 he had become a member of the well-known Leningrad photographic club Zerkalo, where he had his first solo exhibition. Since his photography had no connection with official Soviet propaganda, the opportunity to declare himself publicly as an artist came only at the peak of Perestroika in 1989 with his Nomenclature of Signs exhibition and the creation of Ligovka 99, a photographers’ exhibition space that was independent of the Communist ideology. Titarenko has received numerous awards from institutions such as the Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne, Switzerland; Soros Center for Contemporary Art, St. Petersburg; and the Mosaique program of the Centre National de l’Audiovisuel du Luxembourg. He has participated in more than thirty solo exhibitions, both in Europe and the United States. His works are in the collections of major museums, including the State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg; Philadelphia Museum of Art; George Eastman House, Rochester, New York; Museum of Fine Arts Boston; Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; European House of Photography, Paris; Musée Reattu Arles, France; and Musée de l’Elysée Museum for Photography, Lausanne, Switzerland, among many others.
