December 7, 2018 in the gallery of modern art of the State Museum of Fine Arts of the Republic of Tatarstan opens the exhibition “Russia. Realism. XXI Century". The exhibition features works from the collection of the Russian Museum, the Ekaterina Cultural Foundation, the Triumph Gallery, the Artwin Gallery Galleries, the Marina Gisich Gallery, the Anna Nova Gallery, the Evgeny Khamin collection, as well as works owned by the authors.
The audience will be presented 29 works of contemporary realist artists: Ilya Gaponov, Dmitry Gretsky and Evgenia Kats, Vadim Grigoriev-Bashun, Alexander Dashevsky, Kirill Koteshov, Olga Osnach, Alexander Tokarev, Mikhail Khazin, Alan Khatagty, Kiril Chelushkin and others. Artists are not enter into one or another creative association, and each work in their own direction. Many of these masters are brought together by the desire to fix in a sharp, sometimes provocative form a new point of view, under which the realistic tradition is now being considered. This is not the usual view of the realism of the XIX or XX century, first “critical”, then “socialist”.
The exhibition presents various ways of developing a realistic tradition in the works of modern Russian artists working on the verge of academism, photorealism, and other variations of this trend that emerged in the last decades of the twentieth century.
In the modern world, the forms and language of art are changing, the traditional genre is filled with other content. The desire for a sober assessment of the Soviet period of history, the theme of the "closed" city, the urban landscape, the Hindustrial space, the role of man and his place in the modern world are issues that concern artists. Their work is distinguished by the so-called non-mathematics, an addiction to the state of affairs.
For the first time, Kazan painters, portrait masters and story paintings Ilnur Siraziev, Irik Musin, as well as young artist Alexei Tsybisov, whose works selected by the curators, fit into the concept, take part in this unique, grand exhibition.
The exhibition in Kazan at the site of the renewed modern art gallery of the State Museum of Fine Arts of the Republic of Tatarstan demonstrates, in addition to traditional, innovative genres and types of art: installation, media art, which greatly expands the possibilities of transmission and the communicative functions of modern art.
