At the exhibition, residents and guests of the city will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the works of one of the brightest representatives of Soviet art of the 1920–1930s, whose career began in Kazan and continued in Moscow. Among contemporaries, Vladimir Kudryashev was known, first of all, as a sculptor who succeeded in creating monumental-decorative sculptures that adorned the streets and parks of Moscow and other cities of the Soviet Union. Unfortunately, most of the artist’s works in this genre have not survived to our days, and only photographs preserved in the family archives provide an idea of them.
However, the work of Vladimir Kudryashev is not limited to sculpture. The exhibition will feature his paintings and graphic works. Guests of the exhibition have a chance to look at Vladimir Kudryashev not only as the well-known and successful master of “socialist realism” of the 1930s, but also as the bold avant-garde experimenter of the 1920s in the graphic works of the Kazan period. The artist will also appear as an attentive and loving family man, who in the 1930s created touching sketches of his family members - his wife and children, who became models of his sculptures in the Moscow period. Thus, the exhibition organically combines the public and intimate aspects of the artist’s life.
The famous Moscow “Galeev Gallery” took part in the creation of the exhibition, which in its activities pays a lot of attention to studying and presenting Kazan art. It was in this gallery in 2006, the first personal exhibition of Vladimir Kudryashev. The Kazan exposition differs in many ways from the Moscow one (as well as the Cheboksary one, which took place in April 2018), including a number of works that had not been previously exhibited. First of all, these are posters and wooden sculpture of the early 1920s from the collection of the National Museum of the Republic of Tatarstan. Regulars of the State Museum of Fine Arts of the Republic of Tatarstan will see well-known works by V. Kudryashev from the museum’s collection, including etchings from the album “Kazan Kremlin” (1922). Most of the exhibits are provided by the artist’s daughter Irina Vladimirovna Kudryasheva, who in recent years has been studying the work of her father. She will come from Moscow and take part in the opening ceremony of the exhibition.
The project of the exhibition in the spring of 2019 participated in the competition of museum projects of the Russian Cultural Foundation “Genius of the Place” and was awarded a special prize.
The exhibition will run on July 28, 2019
