In the P.I. Tchaikovsky, the exhibition "Tchaikovsky - XIX – XXI: Tradition vs Experiment" opens in Moscow - a joint project of the Russian National Museum of Music and the Russian Institute of Theater Arts - GITIS, uniting in one exhibition space the works of scenographers of different generations: recognized masters of the past and contemporary artists - graduates and students of GITIS.
The new exhibition at the Tchaikovsky Museum in Moscow provides an opportunity to see and compare the stylistics of the artists’ language within the framework of tradition and creative experiment. Traditional examples of classical scenography are reflected in the sketches of the scenery of the greatest master of Russian art of the first quarter of the 20th century: Alexander Benois, whose creative searches were based on retrospectivism (The Queen of Spades), as well as in the works of Pyotr Stepanov, Viktor Simov and Boris Matrunin, who reproduced realistic costumes and scenery (Eugene Onegin).
Also in line with the traditional format were the creative solutions of GITIS graduates of the 1990s – 2010s: Svetlana Arkhipova, Mary Uvarova, Maria Krivtsova, Yanina Kushtevskaya, Gennady Skomorokhov, Jutta Rotte, Anna Khodorovich, Anastasia Chernyshova. Their sketches of costumes and scenery are dedicated to the operas Eugene Onegin and The Queen of Spades, the ballets The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty. Today, the authors are successfully implementing new forms of "parallel reality" in theaters in Moscow and St. Petersburg, Kazan, Kineshma, Smolensk, Omsk and other Russian cities.
Contemporary art is represented by experimental installations prepared by fourth-year students of the Faculty of Scenography of GITIS, workshop of Stanislav Morozov. Contemporary artists place accents in classical subjects differently, expanding the boundaries - both in methods and in ways of interpretation. They are ready to break all known stereotypes and turn the performance of classical pieces into performance.
Among the works presented: graffiti and video art by Daniel Pivi for the ballet The Nutcracker, specially grown crystals and corals by Anastasia Milova for the opera Ondine, collages by Anastasia Plokhikh for the opera The Enchantress, plaster sculptures by Alena Grek for the opera Mazepa and Irina Brinkus overture-fantasy "Hamlet". The collective multifaceted "Image of the Composer" was created by Valida Kazhlaeva. The most provocative work by Irina Brinkus is an imitation of a chandelier made of meat and beads dedicated to the Hundred Years War and the sacrifice of Joan of Arc (Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s opera "The Maid of Orleans").
The curator of the exhibition is Dmitry Butkevich, a GITIS teacher, journalist, art critic.
The project will be presented at the PI Tchaikovsky Museum in Moscow until June 13.
