18 june 2014—1 september 2014
The new exhibition of the Russian Museum will bring together over 100 sculptural works created from paper. Among 60 participants of exhibition are the sculptors, painters, graphics and designers from St. Petersburg and Moscow. They are working in different trends and techniques, but they are united by use of paper as the basic material for artistic work. One of them prefer to work with pure list of whatman, the other - with newspaper or cardboard and uses the means of collage, papier-mache and different colour decisions. The special interest gains the objects executed in the technique of "author's paper" that is prepared by artist and has different effects of facture. The content of exhibition is the overcoming of two-dimensional surface of paper and transformation of the latter in the sculptural volume. In comparison with another traditional materials- metal or stone, the paper for the sculptor is easier to work with. That gives the author an opportunity to convey the immediate impressions and to present the imperceptible images and ideas. The motifs and subjects for these works are suggested for the author by the material itself - by paper that has its history and secrets.

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. 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.
