    The life and adventures of Anatoly Zverev. A meeting with the chief curator of the collection
    For decades, Stockholm housed a large and unique collection of early works by Anatoly Zverev, put together by the friend of the great collector George Kostaki-Dimitri Apazidis. The book-catalogue 'The Life and Adventures of Anatoly Zverev' contains previously unknown, unexpected and masterfully executed works: landscapes, sketches from the life of Sokolniki Park, illustrations of Anatoly Zverev to Ilf and Petrov's novels 'The Twelve Chairs' and 'The Little Golden Calf', and, of course, portraits. This book is not a classic museum catalog, but a storytelling experience. The common thread is the story of the collection's curator Georgy Apasidis, who knew Zverev closely. The works are accompanied by the artist's own apt statements - and the life and adventures of Anatoly Zverev are shaped by this dialogue, by memories and paintings.

    Participants: Natalia Volkova (chief curator of the AZ Museum, Russia), Georgiy Apazidis (curator of the collection in Stockholm, Sweden, participates online).

    Selected drawings from the collection of the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Paris and Moscow
    In early 2019, the Fondation Custodia in Paris hosted the exhibition 'Five Centuries of European Drawing from the collection of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts'. In 2020, the Pushkin Museum displayed selected drawings from their collections in the exhibition 'From Dürer to Matisse ...'. Both the Paris and Moscow expositions are largely the same in composition, but still not identical. In fact, they are two stages of a single project. The comparison of these exhibitions, as well as the French and Russian versions of the catalog, is the theme of this panel discussion. Participants include the director of the Fondation Custodia Ger Luijten (online), specialists from the Pushkin Museum, as well as representatives of the Slovo/Slovo publishing house. Vitaly Mishin, a leading researcher of the State Museum of Fine Arts and curator of the exhibition 'From Dürer to Matisse...', will present the catalog issued for this exhibition by Slovo/Slovo publishing house. The speech provides an analysis of the text composition and structure of the publication, shows the ties between the organization of illustrations in the catalog and the exposition solutions.

    Meeting with the creators of the experimental laboratory 'Prints' of the Gulag Museum of History
    The creative group of teenagers - participants of the 'Prints' laboratory, which opened the Gulag Museum of History in January 2020, studied the personal archives of the repressed, kept in the Museum. Based on the documents, they created their own three books: 'The History of Several Letters', 'A Piece of Soap', 'We Also Liked to Dance…'. The project is unexpected and in some way risky: to entrust young non-professionals to present museum material. But this was the idea of its creators - Maria Bronskaya and Natalia Markina.

    Architect Ivan Zholtovsky: two epochs in one biography
    The lecture told us about an architect who started his professional career in the late 19th century and, in the middle of the 20th century, turned out to be a living classic and patriarch of the Soviet architectural school. His life story and creative heritage are still full of understatement and white spots. The lecturers shared stories about how, using materials from archive and museum collections, they managed to find out some details related to the initial period of I. Zholtovsky's career and some other episodes from his creative biography.

    THE FUTURE HUB/LIBRARY
    This year, for the first time in Russia, neither an artist nor a curator was awarded the Innovation Prize for his contribution to contemporary art. It was the publisher, Ad Marginem Press. The professional community recognized the importance of the role of books and publishers in the development of contemporary culture.

    We asked the winner to put together a collection reflecting their opinion, what kind of book can be influential and claim to contribute to the development of art and other contemporary creative disciplines.

    An important aspect of the selection was the design - the compliance of the appearance of the book with the visual codes of modernity. For the project LIBRARY Ad Marginem chose books of different publishing houses, decorated by domestic designers who are drawn to the use of typography on the covers and open to printing experiments.

    The exposition includes books of Ad Marginem, Garage, Libra, No Kidding Press, V-A-C, Gaidar Publishing House, Novy Publishing House, Nosorog, Strelka.

    'DRAWING IN A MUSEUM'. Exhibition of teachers and students from Simple School
    Any museum is an airtight environment dedicated to one theme. The interior, exhibits, infrastructure, visitors and employees of one museum are noticeably different from any other - each museum has its face and history. Such a focused image becomes a fruitful theme for artists.

    Painting in a museum does not mean only the depiction of the exhibits. For an artist this environment is also interesting as a complex: the nature of space, the scale of objects, light, color, smells, textures, characters - all this is closely related. This synesthetic integrity of the museum's image provides the basis not only for cursory sketches, but also for graphic series, comics and illustrated books. In addition to purely visual impressions in a museum, you always get new information, which can also become part of a graphic story.

    For many years, Simple School has conducted drawing events in the museums of the city. We cooperated with the Tretyakov Gallery, Polytechnic and drew in many museums of Moscow, from the largest to the smallest. The exposition includes works by the school's teachers and students. This exhibition is another answer to the question: "Why do you need to go to museums?"

    Dmitry Gorelyshev, art director of Simple School.
