The Multimedia Exhibition “The Russian Avant-garde” in the Kuzbass Centre of the Arts

10 december 2020—10 december 2020

The multimedia exhibition “The Russian Avant-garde” organised in the framework of the activities of the Russian Museum’s Branch in the town of Kemerovo will be open on 15th December 2020 in the Kuzbass Centre of the Arts.

Thirty works of the Russian Avant-garde will provide the base for the grandiose multimedia exposition. Each work has a special significance both in the collection of the Russian Museum and in Russian art of the first third of the 20th century. The visitors will view how the works by Kazimir Malevich, Vasily Kandinsky, Alexander Rodchenko and Pavel Filonov, the highlights of the Russian Avant-garde were being created.

The conception of the exhibition concerns the analysis and interpretation of the structure of those art movements as Suprematism, Abstract art, Constructivism and Analytical art. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Russian Avant-garde artists departed from the academic tradition in art and opened the challenges of working with a pure form, colour, and space. The artists rejected the traditional significance of the subject, nature and qualities of painting. At the exhibition the visitors will enable to view the appearance of the pioneering art movements, to explore the composition of the paintings and drawings, follow the logic of spatial forms, work of an eye and artist’s hand. The works of the prominent masters of the Russian Avant-garde will be performed unfamiliar at first glance. They will be separated in forms, presented in movement of masses and colours, in spatial qualities of a line, point, plane and magic of rhythm and rationality, harmony of cosmic chaos or a hidden movement in statics.  

The main statements of the Avant-garde will be visualised in spatial projections for four areas specially built for the exhibition. The soundtrack to the exhibition will be the music by Dmitri Shostakovich. Its energy and the inner dramatic composition and direction will complete the impression from the exhibition. The Symphony No. 1 in F minor and Symphony No. 2 in B major by Dmitri Shostakovich were recorded and performed by the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra (St. Petersburg) conducted by Valery Gergiev.

It is not an accidental experience for the Russian Museum to develop the multimedia project. The Russian Museum has become a constant scientific and methodological centre for the regions of Russia since 1990s. This refers to the sphere of digital technologies in culture as well. Nowadays each event in the museum’s activities is the experience, which has been carefully prepared by the years of experiments.

The digital exhibition “The Russian Avant-garde” in Kemerovo has become for the team of the Multimedia Centre of the Russian Museum the result of long-standing experiments in the sphere of computer visualisation. Telling about art in the language of art itself, the Russian Museum opens the new possibilities and a new page in collaboration with its branches and offices in different towns and countries. The Kuzbass Centre of the Arts will become the first institution for this unique experiment.
