The Moscow and Voronezh-based Russian artist will talk in the lead up to this year’s Liverpool Biennial, running July 6 to October 16, where he will present ‘Last Planet Parade’, a small museological exhibition and stained glass windows in one of the few remaining terraced houses of the once-lively and ethnically diverse area of Granby Four Streets.
Zhilyaev’s work focuses on artistic, political, scientific, and museological histories to “uncover and propose potential futures” and the space between fiction and non-fiction by casting “a revisionist lens” on the heritage of soviet museums and their meaning in relation to the history of Russian Cosmism.
Zhilyaev contributed work to the Rare Earth survey exhibition and catalogue (which aqnb reviewed here) and is an editorial board member of Moscow art magazine, Khudozhestvennyi Zhurnal and a contributor to online publishing and archiving platform e-flux.
