PYOTR DIK. TERRITORY OF SILENCE

PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST’S WIFE. 1953 OIL ON CANVAS. 85Х70 PROPERTY OF THE ARTIST
22 november 2012—11 march 2013

The exposition of the second (after 1997) solo exhibition of Russian artist Pyotr Dik (1939–2002) in the Russian Museum will include about 100 pastel works. The artist used such unusual medium for his compositions as sand paper that helped him to achieve the feeling of a special emotional depth of the images that exist on the border of the real and the abstract.

Pyotr Dik was ethnic German born in Russia. He lived and worked in Vladimir town. This is the reason why the analyticity of Europe and refined poetics of East in his works coexist in harmony. One of the major sources of inspiration for this master was the Old Russian Art that addressed to primary existence. Pyotr Dik worked in numerous genres, and in each of them proved to be the artist-philosopher who had discovered the connection between the ordinary and the eternal.

The Leningrad Rock Club in Photographs. Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Its Opening

17 december 2020—10 may 2021

The Leningrad Rock Club was established in early 1981 and has become a true center of attraction for musicians whose art did not fit into the Soviet cultural framework. The Leningrad Rock Club was a sign of the era of upcoming changes in the country and even now, after forty years, it is hardly needed to explain what was its role in the cultural and social life of Leningrad and, more broadly, the country.
