The jubilee exhibition of Ivan Lubennikov, the People's Artist of the Russian Federation, includes more than 60 paintings of different years, from the 1980s to the present day, and is designed to present a wide range of topics that the author is passionate about. Lubennikov's style is distinguished by monumentality and laconism of form, special author's irony and somewhat brutal presentation of the image. The exposition will feature female images, where the artist's contemporaries are captured in the image of goddesses, and works that combine the genres of portrait and still life, where characters are refracted in numerous reflections, mirrors, vessels and aquariums.
Age restrictions: 12+
The exhibition is supported by the “Free Artists of St.Petersburg” Project

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.
