Ian Ginsburg is a Russian installation artist whose artistic practice, is a noncanonical example of working with memory in Russian contemporary art. His work belongs within the discourse of the archival impulse, which is crucial for recent international aesthetic context. Creating a dialogue with a specific artist and then analyzing certain artistic phenomenon ( such as art history and aesthetic theories) the artist marks out the premises and traces of artistic production processes.

Selected exhibitions include Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Osnova gallery, Fabrika Center of Creative Industries and Winzawod in Moscow, and Manege in St. Petersburg.

Ian Ginsburg is currently represented by Osnova Gallery.
