Михаил Дашевский готовится к персональной выставке «Невидимая Москва. Город в эпоху до Перестройки» в Хьюстоне, США
В конце октября в Хьюстоне в рамках XIV ЕЖЕГОДНОГО ФЕСТИВАЛЯ ДОКУМЕНТАЛЬНОГО КИНО В ТЕХАСЕ «ОБРАЗЫ РОССИИ» состоится персональная выставка фотографий москвича Михаила Дашевского «Невидимая Москва. Город в эпоху до Перестройки». В экспозицию войдут ставшие классическими изображения Москвы Дашевского 1960-1980-х годов.
Выставка – совместный проект Русского культурного центра «Наш Техас» (Хьюстон, США), Международного фестиваля фотографии FotoFest (Хьюстон, США), фонда «Архив фотографий Михаила Дашевского» (Москва) и Международного фестиваля фотографии PhotoVisa (Краснодар).
В эпоху пандемии автор будет присутствовать на выставке лишь виртуально. Но сами отпечатки отправились за океан, чтобы быть представленными на стенах Sawyer Yards, центра, где проходят основные показы биеннале FotoFest и множество других заметных выставок и ярмарок современного искусства в Хьюстоне.
