The main question that this exhibition answers is how the museum actually works? The sections of the exhibition “Storage”, “Acquisition”, “Restoration”, “Research”, “Presentation” tell about different aspects of museum work, about how year after year, decade after decade, despite any difficulties and losses, the museum continued to collect, store, study and present the collection to its visitors.
The exhibition was opened by the Minister of Culture of the Voronezh region Maria Mazur, the director of the museum Yulia Zaichenko and the curator of the exhibition, the scientific secretary of the museum Natalia Bakina.
The director of the museum noted that the central hall of the permanent exhibition – Romanovsky – was allocated for the new exhibition. Such an exposition decision has not been made in the last 30-40 years. In addition, Yulia Nikolaevna expressed her gratitude to everyone who worked on the exhibition: museum staff, contractors and the artist of the exhibition – Mikhail Viktorov.
The Minister of Culture congratulated everyone on the opening of the main anniversary exhibition of the year dedicated to the history and existence of the museum. Maria Alexandrovna drew attention to the fact that all sections of the exhibition should be carefully studied and be sure to listen to the tour of the curator of the exhibition.
Natalia Bakina noted that this exhibition wanted to tell about the inner workings of the museum, which is not always visible to visitors: “While working on the exhibition, I could not get rid of the well-known phrase “To stand still, you need to run, and to move forward, you need to run twice as fast.” The museum is often presented as a standard of stability, but how much work is invested in ensuring that everything remains stable. I wanted to show the work of my colleagues, what we are doing to collect, preserve, “heal” our works and tell them about them in an interesting way.”
Recall that the exhibition is located on the 2nd floor of the permanent exhibition of the museum and will last until December 10.
