Nomeda Saukiene.”Rabbits” Game. 1994. Oil on canvas. 100х100
17 may 2012—18 june 2012
For the first time in Russia this exhibition presents the creative oeuvre of the modern Lithuanian artists Sharunas Sauki, his wife Nomeda Saukene and son Mikolas Sauki. Despite of all stylistic and thematic differences presented works are common in the authors’ aspiration for comprehension of contradictory and dramatic problems of a human being in complex many-valued images. Along with fantastical floral motifs-fantasies by Nomeda Saukene the show include surrealistic canvases by Sharunas Sauki that are devoted to the enigmatic and frighten world of the subconscious and dreams, and expressive and often shocking sculpture objects by Mikolas Sauki.

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.
