Pushkinsky, Tretyakov Gallery, Garage and GES-2 merged into the "Museum Four" Automatic translate
The State Tretyakov Gallery, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and the GES-2 House of Culture have merged into the Museum Quartet (or M4). On September 14, the presentation of the project took place in the courtyard of the Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design.
The unification of four institutions makes it possible for residents and guests of the city to rethink the cultural geography of the capital and plan a visit taking into account their preferences and interests, time constraints and, in the future, the degree of mobility. The basis of the project is the author’s routes, which include famous and unusual city locations, museum collections and temporary exhibitions, musical and performance events, as well as educational events. The Museum Quartet is a space where the past and present of world culture come into contact with the rich history and dynamic modernity of Moscow.
“We are different from museum miles in other capitals of the world - we are all located along the line of the Moskva River, which gives a different perspective, expanding horizons. Expanding the horizon is one of the most important tasks. This is an initiative that will seriously help the interaction of viewers with all of us, our interaction with the city. It is no coincidence that we declare our association, offering four most interesting routes at once, ”said Zelfira Tregulova, General Director of the Tretyakov Gallery.
“We are united by the most important thing - a similar view of the world. The geography that formally connects us has many advantages in terms of creative improvisation. We send a signal to our viewers and guests of the city that there are four museums, entering each of which, you can see something whole. The history of art is what we show together. Our branches are located in the regions, and through our experience, energy and inspiration, such associations may end up, after Moscow, in places where we are already present and in whose development we are very interested. It is broader than just Moscow, and broader than just four institutions that are close to each other, ”shared the director of the Pushkin Museum. A.S. Pushkina Marina Loshak.
“This is truly an unprecedented union, when two federal museums and two privately organized ones unite in Moscow. At the same time, these are one of the most public institutions that are guided by the world cultural agenda, which they think is common to all. Here, a dialogue with modernity is a fundamental moment. Moscow is becoming the city from which one does not want to leave and which competes in the field of cultural offer with other world cities, ”said Anton Belov, director of Garage.
“We are close not only geographically, but also ideologically, always and in everything we support each other. The institutional alliance in Moscow is a great success, allowing to develop the urban environment, providing new opportunities for this and generating a keen interest of the audience. I urge you to perceive the Museum Quartet as a metaspace that creates an original cultural offer that is not limited by the walls of museums, ”said Teresa Iarocci Mavica, director of the V-A-C Foundation.
Informal associations of cultural institutions, such as the Museum Quartet, exist in many large cities around the world: for example, in Vienna it is the Museum Quarter, in New York and London - the Museum Mile. Each of these locations attracts millions of tourists and locals every year. The Moscow initiative is also focused on interacting with a wide audience: residents of Moscow and guests of the city who are interested in the cultural life of the capital. A specially created association site will accumulate these seasonally updated routes.
The route of the Pushkin Museum is a mocumentari performance "Giant Vegetables" directed by Semyon Aleksandrovsky. The storytellers (former museum workers, philosopher, waitress, tour guide and other townspeople) share their memories of the inexplicable appearance of giant pumpkins in the center of Moscow and their equally mysterious disappearance.
The route from the Garage Museum was created by the architectural historian Anna Bronovitskaya. It will allow you to get an idea of the architectural diversity of museum institutions that are part of the "Museum Four", and the iconic structures located near them.
The route from the Tretyakov Gallery to the New Tretyakov Gallery contains museums, mansions and former factories that "have enriched the national cultural landscape." The route was made by Tatyana Yudenkova - Doctor of Art History, head of the painting department of the second half of the 19th - early 20th centuries.
The route of the House of Culture "GES-2" is a geometric walk invented by the artist Anastasia Ryabova. Route H3 has eight equivalent points that fold into a cube shape. You can choose the most convenient and shortest route, or you can go along all the proposed trajectories.
One of the most important goals of the Museum Quartet is to provide an accessible environment and the dissemination of an inclusive culture, an interinstitutional team is working on this, which includes employees of four museums, specialists of various profiles, independent experts and consultants with experience with disabilities.
For these purposes, an "Accessible Map" will be created, with the help of which it will be possible to independently assess the physical accessibility of a particular route. The map will show ramps, accessible toilets, and various barriers, sensory load areas, and other aspects of the environment.
For the museum routes themselves, adapted versions will be developed for people with different forms of disabilities. Using a special filter, it will be possible to select a route in Russian sign language, a route using a tiflo commentary, or a route in plain language. There will also be audio files with tiflo-walks designed to navigate blind and visually impaired visitors to museum buildings. The Museum Quartet website is currently being audited for digital accessibility.

In the halls of the New Tretyakov Gallery, masterpieces of the 1900-1920s are replaced by works of socialist realism of the 1930-1950s.The creativity of the artists of the "severe style" of the 1960s is demonstrated in parallel with the art of the representatives of the "underground", which marked the beginning of the "second wave" of the Russian avant-garde. The final part of the exposition, which presents works from the 1980s – 2010s, is fundamentally "open" in nature - the museum continues to replenish its collection with the newest and most relevant works of Russian authors.
