“The Youth of Russia” Russian National Youth Art Festival “Union of Russia’s Artists: Probation // Today/ Tomorrow”


Vera Lagutenkova

The Union of Russia’s Artists (URA), one of Russia’s oldest and largest alliances of visual artists and a Russian national non-profit, regularly holds exhibitions of young artists. Thanks to its expansive geographical reach (the URA has chapters in every Russian region) and pool of experts in every field of art, the URA has the intellectual resources necessary to spot and support new talent, and the Union’s efforts to popularise art include promoting young Russian artists exploring a wide range of creative practices.

Olga Stekolshchikova

The Tretyakov Gallery is proud to present an expanded exhibition of paintings by Viktor Glukhov, People’s Artist of the Russian Federation (b. 1946), long-time head of the Moscow Union of Artists and a member of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Arts. Glukhov has always been a good friend to the Tretyakov Gallery and has helped with the successful development of its programmes on many occasions, lending a helping hand and support in sometimes complex situations.

Loyalty to One’s Calling


Alexander Rozhin

In the historiography of Mikhail Bulgakov’s “crepuscular” - in the words of Konstantin Simonov - novel “The Master and Margarita”, we can identify only a handful of creative works based on it within Russian artistic culture, despite the widespread interest it continues to attract from readers across the world. Among these few are Yuri Lyubimov’s production at the Taganka Theatre (with conceptual decorations by David Borovsky), Vladimir Bortko’s television series (with the artists Vladimir Svetozarov and Marina Nikolaeva), Yuri Kara’s film with its outstanding cast, and the unique animation experiment by Sergei Alimov, as well as a range of works in the genres of book illustration and easel painting.

Meret Oppenheim: Mon Exposition


Nina Zimmer

To this day, Meret Oppenheim is best known as a Surrealist artist, however, the exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Bern also shows her as a contemporary artist from the 1950s to 1980s - always closely connected to the Swiss art scene and current international trends. This is evident in works such as “Octavia”, “Genoveva” or “Flower of the Fog”.

Gabriele Mtinter: Not Just “the Lady Painter of the Dozen”


Kai-Inga Dost

Over a period of more than six decades, Gabriele Münter (1877-1962) created a broad and multifaceted oeuvre. With unbridled curiosity, she continued to try new techniques and forms of representation, which would cause her work to shine even without the aura of the ‘Blue Rider’.

Markus Lüpertz: Notes on an Irrational Retrospective at MMOMA


Vasili Tsereteli, Maria Doronina

MMOMA (The Moscow Museum of Modern Art) on Petrovka Street has hosted Moscow’s first retrospective exhibition of works by Markus Lüpertz, a renowned German painter who has had an immense impact on several generations of artists and whose creative work is irrevocably interwoven with the history of German postwar art.

Restoration: the Discovery of a New Artwork by Yuri Pimenov


Sofia Chapkina

The paintings of old masters can sometimes harbour many secrets, which intrigue art fans and connoisseurs alike. A secret can be linked to a painting’s creation or its survival, but sometimes it hides within the painting itself, beneath layers of paint, waiting to be discovered by researchers and restorers.
