Inside the Marble Palace (Sound, Dance, Performance)
13 december 2017—15 january 2018
Film “I See a Darkness” (2007) by Joao Onofre will be on display between December 13 and January 15 as part of the project “Inside the Marble Palace (Sound, Dance, Performance).”

Films by Portuguese artist Joao Onofre are based on performance and theater. The artist interprets the song “I See a Darkness” (2007) by Bonnie “Prince” Billy performed by two schoolkids. First, the children sing in the darkness; then light appears, gradually becoming absolutely white.

“Inside the Marble Palace (Sound, Dance, Performance)” is a joint project of the Russian Museum and Centre National des Arts Plastiques, Paris, France.

“Inside the Marble Palace” is a series of nine exhibitions exploring performativity in which dance and sound play a significant part. Ever since the time of its emergence, video art was closely connected with performance. The possibility to record and show at the same time, the use of time as one of the main elements — all of this provides common ground between performance and video art. The artists visualize sound and vocalize space; saturate their works with dense sound or deafening silence; refer to the performance tradition and avant-garde choreography; reinterpret popular tunes and film stills that serve as cultural archaeology and a breeding ground for their art.

The exhibitions continue the series of video screenings at the Museum Ludwig at the Russian Museum.

19 july—27 august 2018

Andrei Volkov is now one of the most radical abstract painters among Russian artists. His compositions, distinguished by the materiality of color, juxtapose depth and surface, dynamic and static, the space of painting and the space of reality mirrored in it.
