The exhibition of Russian Cosmism curated by Maxim Boxer held in London during Russian Art Week 2014, culminating with the auction on the 3rd of June, proved a popular event.
The well-respected English auctioneer Mr. Edward Rising conducted the auction, and buyers included art dealers, collectors and art enthusiasts from Russia, England and Switzerland. The enthusiastic response suggests that Maxim Boxer and Konstantin Semkin’s mission, “to bring the attention of a wider audience to Russian contemporary art; to offer magnificent works of art with an affordable price range; and to share the passion and happiness of owning a piece of Russian art with a wider audience”, was achieved with great success.
The exhibition and auction attracted high interest and wide media coverage in the UK and in Russia. Links to the reviews can be found at: Storify and Press
