The Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center presents the exhibition “A game with masterpieces: from Henri Matisse to Marina Abramovich.” The exhibition will show the masterpieces of modernism and modern art - from cubism to video art. The core of the exhibition will be the works of foreign and domestic artists: Kazimir Malevich and Francis Bacon, Roy Lichtenstein and Victor Pivovarov, Natalia Goncharova and Marina Abramovich, Alberto Giacometti and Bridget Riley, Anselm Kiefer and Niko Pirosmani.
“Playing with masterpieces” is first of all a family project. Built as an attraction, where to get acquainted with the works you need to climb the stairs, crouch, slide down or look into the closet, it will give children and adults the opportunity to see the works of cult contemporary artists outside of schools and concepts. The exposition will include selected works of the 20th and 21st centuries: works by Malevich (“Three figures in the field”), Bacon (“Sketch of George Dyer’s head”), Liechtenstein (“Portrait”) Yakovlev (“The cat that caught the bird”), Pivovarov (“ Pasha ”,“ Vike ”), Goncharova (“ Bathers ”), Kiefer (“ Adalbert Stifter ”), as well as Kandinsky, Pirosmani, Abramovich, Picasso, Matisse, and other famous artists. In total, viewers will see more than 30 works in various genres: from painting and photography to installation and experimental animation.
Adults often feel lost in contemporary art exhibitions because they do not know the names and suspect that they need some special knowledge to understand all this. The children are sure that all this was not invented for them - if only because the pictures hang too high. At the exhibition “A game with masterpieces”, the works are often at the level of children’s eyes, and the exhibits and explanations help children to get rid of the stereotype about the museum as something boring and imposed by adults. Adults can look at modern art without fear of not understanding it.
Works of different eras, schools, styles and trends become a single statement, the purpose of which is to tell about the universality of art, enter into a dialogue with it and allow the emotional to prevail over the rational.
Within the framework of the exhibition, a program of educational activities will be held at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center - lectures on emotional intelligence, children’s workshops and interdisciplinary meetings with psychologists, art historians and bodily practices.
Curators of the exhibition: Alexey Munipov, Irina Munipova, Liya Chechik, Irina Dvoretskaya
