Armchairs, chairs and stools in Russian art of the 18th-20th centuries

Armchairs, chairs and stools in Russian art of the 18th-20th centuries
18 august—10 october 2022

This exhibition will introduce viewers to the furniture preserved in the Russian Museum, a collection the public is not very familiar with. It will also open up a new perspective on well-known Russian works of art from Yury Vasnetsov, Alexander Vedernikov, Orest Kiprensky, Boris Kustodiev, Vladimir Makovsky, Evsei Moiseyenko, Tatyana Nazarenko, Olga Ostroumova-Lebedeva and many other distinguished artists.

The “protagonists” of the exhibition are furniture pieces used for sitting: from antique benches and chests to chairs and armchairs from contemporary designers. Alongside them are depictions of furniture and people seated on it, in various types of art. The chair is examined as a detail of the surroundings and as a symbolic object. 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.

The exhibition is supported by SeverstalPower Machines, LentaNordgoldSvezaFun&Sun company.
