VLADIMIR YANKILEVSKY. MOMENT OF ETERNITY

12 july 2007—31 august 2007
Retrospective exhibition of Vladimir Yankilevsky?s work organized by the Ekaterina Cultural Foundation and the Russian Museum incorporates the works by the artist from the largest national and foreign museums and private collections. Vladimir Yankilevsky has a special place in the history of Russian art: he is a classic of the 1960s nonconformism. Yankilevsky had participated in the famous "Thirty Years of MOSKh" exhibition at the Manezh, contributed to the legendary magazine Knowledge is Power (Znanie — Sila), and was one of the Sretensky Boulevard artists. During that period, he formulated his main creative strategies underlying the structure of his works, his artistic concept that greatly influenced the whole generation of artists in the 1980s and '90s. Vladimir Yankilevsky was one of the first artists to conceive and place real objects in the painting?s space, adding a kind of topographical reality to the painting?s structure as well as creating object-installations. After the USSR had collapsed, he moved first to New York and then to Paris while continuing his creative search. He has become one of the few artists who managed to escape the limits of "unofficial Soviet art" to get integrated into the contemporary art context, working with Western and now also with Russian galleries, and taking part in major international exhibitions.

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.
