Exhibition “Opening Funds. Graphics of Soviet Artists 1960s – 70s "


In the Voronezh Regional Art Museum. I.N. Kramskoy continues a series of exhibitions under the general title “Opening Funds”, which are presented in the halls of the permanent exhibition, thematically and substantively complementing it. The exhibitions of the cycle introduce the graphic works stored in the museum’s funds. Graphic sheets are fragile and very sensitive to light and climatic conditions; therefore, for reasons of preservation, they are rarely exhibited. The exhibition project “Discovering Funds” is a rare opportunity to see unique works.

The fourth exhibition in the series, which opens on December 1, will present about 10 graphic works by Soviet artists from the 1960s – 70s.

In the sixties and seventies, artistic life noticeably intensified, art expands its stylistic and thematic range. Artists are attracted by both the subjects of peaceful everyday life and the heroized themes of space exploration and the construction of the BAM. In the same years, unofficial art with its complicated imagery, references to mythology, religion, and philosophical ideas became more and more noticeable. In artistic terms, the masters turn to various sources from folk traditions to the discoveries of the avant-garde and the paradoxical fantasies of surrealism.

The exhibition will feature original and printed graphics by Leonid Soyfertis, Alexander Vedernikov, Alexander Gurikov, Vyacheslav Pavlov, Fyodor Semyonov-Amursky, Vera Fedyaevskaya, Viktor Tsigal.
