Mikhail Roginsky

29 april 2004—31 may 2004
Mikhail Roginsky's "Formerly And Now" exhibition showcases works belonging to two periods of is oeuvre - the 1960s and the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries. Roginsky is one of the founders of the modern national art language, with its laconic brevity of means, conceptual distinctness, and inner expression. Though little approved of in the 1960s, Roginsky became one of the most significant masters of Moscow art scene. Denying the Moscow art tradition, which demands of its followers not only sense but spiritual qualities as well, Roginsky reopens the very essence of painting - he creates genre painting, sometimes filled with deep existential emotions, with all his wisdom gained with the life experience. More than a quarter of a century Roginsky left to Paris. However, it was then that he began to create probably the most trustworthy, though not the most complimentary, portrait of Moscow of all made in the last 50 years. His works take us back to the "ideal times" of the 1960s. They show people with half-erased faces and subtly changed proportions, who are both a bit clumsy and stand firmly on the ground. Mikhail Roginsky's paintings are nostalgic and at the same time make one ponder over the history of the humankind, rather than the history of art. The exhibition shows the artist's works from the collections of the State Russian Museum, "Different Art" Museum (Moscow), "Proma" firm (Moscow), Alexei Aleksandrov (Moscow), and a private collection (Moscow).

14 october—15 november 2021

The exhibition was prepared for the 200th anniversary of one of the most famous and frequently cited Russian writers - Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821-1881).
His training at the Engineering School (in the 1840s), located in the Mikhailovsky (Engineering) Castle (now a branch of the Russian Museum), is an excellent occasion for the Russian Museum to pay tribute to the memory of one of the authors of the Petersburg myth by presenting an exposition of works from the museum collection in honor of this anniversary.

The exhibition at the Russian Museum brings together the works of Italian and Russian futurists, which allow a viewer to witness the originality of each of the two national versions of this large-scale creative movement. The fundamental works of Italian futurism are shown in dialogue with the iconic works of Russian masters. This will provide an opportunity to see their similarities and differences and deeper perceive the era of avant-garde experiments that swept across Europe.
