Events in Moscow - December 2018

Russian interior design: from Baroque to minimalism (14.12.18 - 12.05.19)

The Bread House of the Tsaritsyno Museum-Reserve will host an exhibition dedicated to the history of Russian interior design from the time of Tsar Aleksey Mikhailovich to the 20th century. Visitors will see over 400 pieces of furniture and decorative items from country palaces, estates and city apartments.
This is the first interior design exhibition of such a scale in Moscow. Passing from showroom to showroom, the Bread House visitors will see how the interior of the royal chambers under Peter the Great became more and more European. Then they will discover how Petrine Baroque was replaced by Rococo which in turn was ousted by Classicism.
The exhibition features works by the foreign artists who worked in Russia in the early 19th century. An entire section is dedicated to historicism and its styles: Neo-Baroque, Neo-Rococo, Neo-Renaissance and Neo-Gothic. The beginning of the 20th century saw the appearance of such trends as Art Nouveau and the Russian Revival style.
The most recent period represented at the exhibition is the pre-war Soviet era. At that time, interior design was dominated by minimalism.

Russian Dining Culture exhibition at Zagorye Gallery (19.12.18 - 10.03.19)

On 19 December, the Zagorye Gallery will present the Russian Dining Culture photo exhibition, organised in collaboration with the Multimedia Art Museum (MAMM). It will feature 80 works by famous (Alexander Rodchenko, Alexander Grinberg, Arkady Shaikhet) and unknown photographers, united by the theme of the feast, during which the Russian national character is revealed.
The photos depict people and their everyday lives, while avoiding direct references to the crucial events in Russian history: the First World War, the October Revolution, the Great Patriotic War, the Thaw and the 1990s.
Visitors will see how people and the surrounding environment have changed and can ask themselves whether we differ much from those who sat at a dining table 20, 30 or 100 years ago.
The launch will take place on 19 December at 6 pm.

Viva la Vida: Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibition at Manezh (21.12.18 - 12.03.19)

Manezh will host the first exhibition of works by the two most famous Mexican artists, Viva la Vida: Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.
Visitors will see over 90 exhibits, including paintings, sketches and lithographs. The exhibition is also dedicated to the history of the most well-known married couple in 20th century art.
They met through their art, when Frida Kahlo, who had just recovered from an accident, brought her earliest works to the famous artist Diego Rivera to critique. “This girl is a natural-born artist, very sensitive and observant,” he would later say about the young Kahlo. Their relationship was to be filled with strong emotions, reflected in her art.
At different times, Diego Rivera experimented in postimpressionism, Cubism and realism. He visited the USSR several times and donated several of his works. The exhibition will showcase the most important ones, such as “Glorious Victory” and his so-called Russian sketches.
The exhibition will include pictures from Dolores Olmedo Museum (Mexico), which has the world’s largest collection of works by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, as well as paintings and illustrations from private European and Latin American collections, the collection of Diego Rivera’s grandson Juan Coronel Rivera and the Arvil Gallery (Mexico City and the US), works from the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and documents from Russian state archives that have not been exhibited before.
A special programme with lectures, film screenings and performances has been planned during the exhibition’s run.
