After last week's outrageous yet (unfortunately) unsurprising Moscow ruling that sentenced Pussy Riot's Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina, and Yekaterina Samutsevich to two years in prison, some better news:
Chelsea art gallery Lombard-Freid Projects has announced plans to host a pop-up art exhibition titled Pussy Riot and an Amnesty International-backed fundraiser on September 10.
Lombard-Freid Projects will screen five videos of the feminist punk collective that feature both the sentenced trio and other artists on continuous loop. As Victoria Dushkina -- who originally conceptualized the show in Moscow but found no support from local galleries -- explains to Bloomberg:
"I'd like to create the atmosphere of absurdity and hysteria that characterized the Pussy Riot trial."
Funds raised will contribute towards the continued defense of Tolokonnikova, Alyokhina, and Samutsevich.
