Moscow Exhibition Portrays Soccer Ball as Art Object

MOSCOW – Works by renowned contemporary artists paying tribute to soccer have been brought together in the Ball in Art exhibition, which was inaugurated here Wednesday on the eve of the 2018 World Cup kick-off in the Russian capital.

The exhibition at Zariadie park, near the Kremlin, brings together more than 60 works from 20 different artists, including pioneering Spanish video artist Antoni Muntadas.

Three videos created by Muntadas are projected in a separate room in the 560-sq.-mt. (6,028 sq. ft.) facility that houses the exhibition.

Ball in Art also brings together works by other renowned artists such as Dario Escobar, from Guatemala, Marco Marin, from Brazil, and Japanese illustrator Yuko Shimizu, whose works pay tribute to the extraordinary goals scored by Argentine legend Diego Maradona.

Marin’s works include several sculptures depicting famous soccer players.

“They depict David Beckham, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi, and I paid special tribute to Lev Yashin, the great goalkeeper from the USSR,” the artist told EFE.

“Pele is also depicted, it is imperative for him to be here,” Marin added.

A light and sound concert by German artist Karsten Winkels will also be presented in Moscow during the World Cup.

The Ball in Art exhibition will be open to the public until July 23.
