All the World's Futures, curatored by Okwei Enwezor, makes a loud statement, both politically and artistically, about the current state of affairs. Gluklya's project, entitled Clothes for Demonstration against False Elections of Putin, sums up the tone of the main themes of the exhibition with its direct politcial overtones and aesthetic sensibilities. The installation at the Arsenale's main pavilion is mounted on long wooden sticks as first used by Gluklya in a demonstration in Moscow. Recreated here for the exhibition, the poles mount different clothing and costumes with slogans and words championing the underdogs of society. The artist works are supported by Akinci Gallery in Amsterdam and V-A-C Fund, Moscow.
