Yu. G. Neroda. Valentina. 1964. Plastic
22 august 2019—28 october 2019
The exhibition will present the diversity of Russian sculpture of the late XX — early XXI century made from polymers and plastics. 

The emergence of new avant-garde trends in painting and the use of ready-made objects at the beginning of the twentieth century completely changed the concept of the work of art. The scientific revolution and the development of industrial technologies led to the emergence of new materials: various types of plastics, rubbers, polymers, etc., which since then have been actively used by artists to create a new type of spatial objects.

Working with plastics, sculptors from Moscow and St. Petersburg look both in the future and in the past, creating projects yet to be realized or referring to the images and plastic principles of ancient classics. Following these trends, the exhibition aims to present a complex and vivid picture of progress in life and art, highlighting the impact of new technologies on the work of our contemporaries. The exhibition includes more than 70 works by thirty artists, among whom are well-known and influential figures in contemporary art.

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.
