According to the head of the project Konstantin Khudyakov, the large-scale project of the TSHR is aimed at a cross-disciplinary analysis of the historical heritage of the USSR in the context of the creative perception of artists of the Soviet and post-Soviet era. “Its uniqueness lies in the fact that the milestones of Russian history are compared with the heritage of the creative unions of artists that arose during the Soviet period,” he notes. “Art in this context becomes a truly historical evidence, which not only visualizes historical facts, but allows us to trace their influence on the fate of subsequent generations.”
The exposition will include more than 100 artworks reflecting the history since the founding of the USSR. The exhibition space will be divided into 6 main sections, in chronological order.
The broadcast of the meanings and main events of the USSR period will be carried out through several parallel channels: through archival film and photographic documents, testimonies of contemporaries, expert assessments, as well as through works of art by artists who were living witnesses of the events themselves.
The exhibition will feature paintings from the collections of the TSHR, the Museum of Contemporary History of Russia, the Vellum Gallery, as well as works of art from private collections of collectors.
