Sergey Esayan

17 september 2002—26 october 2002
The opening exhibition is one of the most significant exhibits which have been organized by Contemporary Art Department of the Russian museum lately. Esayan's works (b. 1939), unlike works of most of Russian emigrant artists, were publicly recognized abroad. The artist is less famous in Russia despite the fact that his first personal exhibition was held in the Institute of physical problems in 1961 with the help of P.L.Kapiza. After Esayan's departure for France, in 1979, his works were successfully demonstrated at personal exhibitions in Vienna, Cologne, Munich, London, Monaco, Bologna, Rome, Paris, and Strasburg. S.Esayan performed also as a stage director and a designer in a play about the life of V.Meyerhold (Stockholm, Shakarazad theatre), and collaborated with I.Bergman. His creative work was greatly influenced by outstanding people of culture and art of the 20th century: A.Kroochenykh, V.Steenberg, P.Bruck, S.Bekett, M.Fuko, L.Goomilev. The exhibition is held under the auspices of M.Rostropovich and G.Vishnevskaya.

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.
