In the 90 years of the last century made the first gallery solo exhibitions in Russia are so popular nowadays Sixties – Dmitry Plavinsky, Oleg Tselkov, Mikhail Shemyakin, Dmitry Krasnopevtsev Ernst Neizvestny. Another focus of our activities have been exhibitions from the museum’s collections of the best Russian artists of the last century – in our showrooms visited the masters of Romantic XVIII-XIX centuries (O. Kiprensky, A. Venetsianov V. Tropinin) as well as solo exhibitions Valentin Serov, Zinaida Serebryakova , Petr Konchalovsky and other artists from the museum collections and private collections, most of which were on display for the first time.
The idea for this project was born when we were approached by the Federal Agency for Culture and Cinematography of the request to form an exhibition of Russian contemporary art in China. More than 400 works were exhibited in the best museum in Beijing – the Museum of Fine Arts, and about 500 thousand people visited the exhibition. We have experienced tremendous pride in our country and have decided that the exhibition of such scope and such a high level should be seen in Russia.
The task of the new gallery – to show that Russia now has a bright and original art that continues the best traditions of Russian and world art!
