In the 1970s and 80s, Soviet émigré artists Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid found international acclaim for their biting commentary on the epoch-defining geopolitics of the Cold War. Taking their portfolio, A Ballet: The Life of Stalin, now in the Ulrich collection, as a starting point, Vitaly Komar will discuss how his experiences of living in both of the Cold War superpowers have shaped his artistic career.
