Lev Yudin: My Own Voice

Lev Yudin. Still life. Coffeepot, pitcher and a sugar bowl. Mid-1930s. Oil on canvas.
13 may—28 june 2021
Lev Yudin is known today to a greater extent due to his belonging to Kazimir Malevich's circle. Indeed, meeting the Teacher had a "formative" effect on his destiny. However, Yudin also earned his own place in history: he grew into an independent, deep and versatile master who managed to “say his own word” in art. This "own" could have become even more pronounced. However, some of the promising creative paths outlined by Lev Yudin (for example, the path close to the OBERIU artists, or the movement towards surrealism), due to the conditions of the time, broke off at the very beginning. The artist's life was short, and many of his works were lost.
The exposition reflects all periods of the master's development. These are cubist and suprematist experiments associated with Vitebsk Unovis and Leningrad Ginkhuk, “strange” graphics of the late 1920s and grotesque everyday life images of the early 1930s, plastic realism (with surrealist “amendments”) of pictorial still lives and landscapes of the second half of the thirties, combining a skill to “build” with the desire to “experience”. Finally, there is a free, liberated drawing of the pre-war years, conveying the continuity of life and its natural course.
The exhibition features illustrations for children's books and magazines, carving prints, linocut prints, perfume sketches, unique photographs of paper sculptures and archival materials. The exposition includes works from state (Russian Museum, Tretyakov Gallery, State Museum "Tsarskoye Selo Collection") and private collections.

The exhibition is supported by Elena Lisina and Alexander Saprykin.

Fyodor Dostoevsky in the Fine Arts from the State Russian Museum Collection. On the 200th Anniversary of the Writer’s Birth

14 october—15 november 2021

The exhibition was prepared for the 200th anniversary of one of the most famous and frequently cited Russian writers - Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821-1881).
His training at the Engineering School (in the 1840s), located in the Mikhailovsky (Engineering) Castle (now a branch of the Russian Museum), is an excellent occasion for the Russian Museum to pay tribute to the memory of one of the authors of the Petersburg myth by presenting an exposition of works from the museum collection in honor of this anniversary.

The exhibition at the Russian Museum brings together the works of Italian and Russian futurists, which allow a viewer to witness the originality of each of the two national versions of this large-scale creative movement. The fundamental works of Italian futurism are shown in dialogue with the iconic works of Russian masters. This will provide an opportunity to see their similarities and differences and deeper perceive the era of avant-garde experiments that swept across Europe.
