The Russians are Coming


FotoFest is mere weeks away, and Houston is readying to host the new power players in the international art world. (Hint: Dasha Zhukova and Roman Abramovich are involved via the Iris Foundation and the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture.) This Russian-themed international Biennial promises to be exciting, revelatory (lifting the veil about under-known schools of Soviet through Perestroika eras and contemporary lensmen) and highly relevant to today%26rsquo;s scene, where the axis of excitement has firmly shifted from China to the Russian Federation. And prepare to acquire images by 70 significant global photographers at the Fotofest International Fine Print Auction. Watch for our go-to Biennial guide next month detailing it all. FotoFest, March 16 %26ndash;%26nbsp;April 29, citywide; auction Tuesday, March 20, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown; info and auction tickets fotofest.org.
