Georgy Kovenchuk: Perception of the World. Painting, Graphic Art, Plastic Art, Video

15 march 2002—8 april 2002
The exhibition presents the oeuvre of modern St Petersburg artist Georgy Kovenchuk, displaying works of art created from the late 1960s to the present day. After studying under Alexei Pakhomov at the Department of Graphic Art in the Academy of Arts (Ilya Repin Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture), Kovenchuk worked as a poster designer, engraver and illustrator. He also painted canvases, created objects and decorated oyster shells. Among the more interesting exhibits are Georgy Kovenchuk's works of 'fax-art' - graphic representations employing unconventional plastic means and the possibilities of modern telecommunications as variants of new artistic technologies. Georgy Kovenchuk's oeuvre is noted for its rare versatility, irony and sense of invention. An indefatigable innovator, he is a universal artist with an innate feeling for other cultures. Works by Georgy Kovenchuk have been acquired by the Tretyakov Gallery, Russian Museum, Museum of the History of St Petersburg, foreign galleries and private collectors.

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

18 august 2022—9 january 2023

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. 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.
