The Union of Youth

Olga Rozanova. At the cafe. 1912-1913.
4 july 2019—2 september 2019
The Petersburg-based society of artists Union of Youth is the first officially registered association of artists of the Russian avant-garde. It was established on February 16, 1910, before the Moscow-based Jack of Diamonds. Despite the exceptional contribution of the Union of Youth to the formation of the Russian avant-garde, there has not yet been a single exhibition dedicated to the first avant-garde group of Russia.

The Union of Youth was initially open to all stylistic innovations: it was conceived as a total project that consolidated young non-academic artists. Among its members were patron L. Zheverzheev, painter, graphic artist, theater artist I. Shkolnik (full-time secretary of the society), E. Spandikov (chairman), graphic artist V. Bystrenin, painters Ts. Schleifer, M. Matyushin, E. Guro, Z. Mostova, N. Lyubavina, and sculptor R. Voinov.

The Russian Museum has the most representative collection of works by member artists and exhibitors of the Union of Youth. The exhibition will show about 200 items (paintings, drawings, scenographic projects, as well as posters and archival materials) from the collections of the Russian Museum, St. Petersburg Museum of Theater and Music, the State Art Museum of Latvia, the National Gallery of Armenia, the Yekaterinburg Museum of Fine Arts, Ulyanovsk Regional Art Museum, V. V. Mayakovsky State Museum, State Literary Museum, Omsk Museum of Fine Arts named after M. A. Vrubel, Yaroslavl Art Museum and private collections.

The exhibition is supported by PAO Severstal, PJSC Power Machines, the International Gold Mining Company Nordgold

Mikhail Vrubel. To the 165th Anniversary of the Artist

3 june—2 august 2022

The exhibition dedicated to the 165th anniversary of Mikhail Aleksandrovich Vrubel (1856-1910) will present the main stages of the path of one of the leading masters of Russian art. Like the titans of the Renaissance, the artist was richly gifted. His creative pursuits and achievements were far ahead of his time. Portraits of contemporaries and landscapes created by him, works inspired by Russian and ancient mythology and classical literature, are marked by high spirituality.
