The first exhibition of the interregional project "Picturesque Russia" starts in Izhevsk.
On August 19, 2022, an exhibition of the Seventh Interregional Project "Picturesque Russia" opens at the Gallery exhibition center in Izhevsk. In 2022, the exhibition project is dedicated to the "art of the young".
The organizer was the Creative Union of Artists of Russia (TSHR) with the support of the Ministry of Culture of Russia. The project was implemented using a grant provided by the NGO "Russian Fund of Culture" within the framework of the federal project "Creative People" of the national project "Culture".
Exhibition “Picturesque Russia. Art of the Young" will be open to visitors in the space of the Museum of the city of Izhevsk until September 11, 2022 and then will go along the route "Kirov-Stavropol-Moscow".
The research project will demonstrate the relevance of Russian easel painting among young people in the context of various innovative trends in contemporary art.
Each of the 7 curators of the project will present a group of young artists who, in their opinion, are the brightest representatives of a particular trend in modern easel painting. In total, the exhibition will feature more than 100 works.
According to Yevgeny Romashko, project manager, the comparison of the works of bright young artists representing various art schools will provide an opportunity to explore current trends in this segment of contemporary art. “As a result of the exhibition project, a holistic image will emerge that reflects the diversity of youth creativity, cultural values and the uniqueness of Russian art,” he notes.
"Picturesque Russia" throughout the history of its existence supports the traditional academic and innovative trends in modern easel painting. Over the years, young artists took part in the project as prominent representatives of different schools, directions and trends. This year’s project is a logical continuation of last year’s “Picturesque Russia. School of the Future”, which was dedicated to the main plastic trends in easel painting on the example of the work of teachers from leading educational institutions of the country.
This year, the organizers dedicated the project to young authors whose work has already developed under the influence of various factors: the historical context of the Russian and Russian painting traditions, regional trends, the characteristics of the school of a particular educational institution, the creativity of teachers and mentors.
The project has been held annually since 2016 and is aimed at popularizing modern Russian easel painting. Since that time, exhibitions within the framework of the project have been held in Pskov, Stavropol, Moscow, Kirov, Smolensk, Saransk, Izhevsk, Novosibirsk, Harbin, Blagoveshchensk, Tyumen, Kazan and Vladimir. More than 300 artists and curators took part in the project.
