Incremental Materials, circa 1980s-2000s

Scope and Contents note

The materials in the increment reflect Barbara Hazard’s own artwork and literary production, her interest in non-conformist work produced by artists in Leningrad/St. Petersburg, and encounters with artists during her trips to Russia.
Archival material consists of Barbara Hazard’s correspondence, diary entries, drafts of part of her book Off Nevsky Prospect, published works, brochures and catalogs of her art exhibits, and miscellaneous related material. There are also photographs, slides, and negatives of Barbara Hazard and her own works and of experimental Russian artists from Leningrad/St. Petersburg and their work. Printed matter related to contemporary Russian art includes art magazines, exhibit brochures and announcements, exhibit catalogs (of individual exhibits and collective exhibits), and some books. Of note is a proposal by the “Free Culture” Humanitarian Foundation (St. Petersburg) to establish the St. Petersburg Museum of Non-Conformist Art.
