Gluklya - The Place of the Artist is on the Side of the Weak: A Manifesto for the 21st Century

In lieu of a live Penny Stamps Speaker Series presentation, we’ve captured a conversation between artist Gluklya and Dianne Beal (BA REES '79), curator and art advisor of Galerie Blue Square. Gluklya (Natalia Pershina-Yakimanskaya) is a visual and performance artist. Her manifesto states: “The place of the artist is on the side of the weak.” She uses clothing, installations, video, participatory projects, text, and research to develop a concept of fragility. For Gluklya, fragility is interpreted not as “delicate beauty” but as “invisible strength.” Her work explores topics of social exclusion, untapped intuitive knowledge, mind-body connections, violation of human rights, and stereotypes. Considered a pioneer of Russian performance art, Gluklya is a co-founder of the Factory of Found Clothes (FFC) and the group Chto Delat (What is to be done?). In 2012, FFC became the Utopian Unemployment Union, a project that unites art, social science, and progressive pedagogy to give people from all social backgrounds an opportunity to make art together. Today, the artist participates in many international shows including the 56th edition of the Venice Biennale (2015) and Positions #4 at the Van Abbemuseum in the Netherlands (2018-19). She has been awarded numerous art prizes and grants, including a fellowship from the Joseph Brodsky Fellowship Memorial Fund in 2014 and support from the Mondriaan Fund for recent projects. This Penny W. Stamps Speaker Series talk is presented in partnership with the U-M Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (CREES).

Zubkov Woodchopping.jpeg


My passion for art began at an early age. I spent hours in the art room at school and at home before deciding to pursue a degree in Russian Studies followed by a Masters of Arts in International Affairs. My first professional experiences were working for non-profit organizations, the US government and private enterprises. I began working on weekends at an art gallery in Washington, DC and soon transitioned to a new position with a gallery representing European artists. This led to establishing my own gallery in Georgetown, specializing in contemporary Russian art and in 2007, opening Galerie Blue Square in the Marais district of Paris. Today, my efforts focus on advising artists and collectors, defining strategies for exhibiting contemporary art and curation of impactful art projects globally.
