The international exhibition “Sciarsism & Sciarsists” shows the works by 15 Russian and foreign authors representing the eponymous art movement. Sergey Dozhd, the founder of Sciarsism, defines it as the science of the inner artistic space, and the term itself is composed of the words “science” and “art”. In Sciarsism, the practice of visual art is inseparable from its theory, the strategy of the new style being tactically supported by works in painting, graphics, installation and video art. The principal idea behind Sciarsism is that for the first time in a hundred years, the inner space of art has become understandable for both artists and viewers.
The exhibition will present the works of contemporary artists made over the past few years, illustrating and developing the theory of Sciarsism in various techniques and art forms. Artists: Edward Bekkerman (USA), Ines Berlin (Germany), Ulrike Bolenz (Germany, Belgium), Franco Viola (Italy), Jeanne Grac (Germany), Sergey Denisov (Russia), Sergey Dozhd (Russia), Nikolina Kovalenko ( USA), Ivan Kolesnikov (Russia), Mally Khorasantchi (Germany, USA), Valery Kuznetsov (Russia), Alexander Pankin (Russia), Viktor Popov (Germany), Evgeny Semenov (Russia), Konstantin Khudyakov (Russia).

It will also open up a new perspective on well-known Russian works of art. What kinds of chairs exist? What are they made of? What do people do while seated? What poses do they adopt? What does an empty chair mean? A synthesis of painting, graphic art, sculpture, applied art, and design, the Russian Museum’s exhibition stimulates ideas on these questions and more.
