From the museum's website:

"The collection includes many works by the collective known as the New Artists. The collective was formed in Leningrad in the 1980s by a group of local avant-garde artists. The exhibition offers a glimpse into the ways in which these intersectional artists came together in Soviet Leningrad and eked out their own underground circuit and subculture. The works of the exhibition are offered in conjunction with the music of the New Composers, another collective that worked closely with the New Artists." more >>
