Heydar Aliyev Center hosts exhibition of Russian avant-garde artists

An exhibition titled “Upon request. The Russian Avant-Garde Collection of the Regional Museums, 1900-1930. Part 3” has opened at the Heydar Aliyev Center.

Vice-President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Leyla Aliyeva attended the opening ceremony of the exhibition.

Addressing the event, executive director of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Anar Alakbarov shared his ideas on the exhibition.

Anar Alakbarov noted that the exhibition is held for the first time in Azerbaijan, and thanked First Vice-President of Azerbaijan, President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Mehriban Aliyeva, and Vice-President of the Foundation Leyla Aliyeva for their support for the organization of the exhibition.

The event participants then viewed the artworks.

The display features unique avant-garde paintings from 17 regional museums scattered all over Russia. The works include canvases by some recognized classical artists like Kazimir Malevich, Wassily Kandinsky, Alexander Rodchenko, Vladimir Tatlin, Alexandra Exter, Marc Chagall, as wel as Victor Bart, Alexei Grischenko, Alexei Morgunov, Sergei Romanovich, Pavel Mansurov and other figures known for their contribution to avant-garde art.

The exhibition brings together artifacts presented at the Upon request, Part 1 and Upon request, Part 2 exhibitions held in Moscow in 2016 and 2017 respectively. The time period spans from the very emergence of the Russian avant-garde art as of the mid-1900s all the way to its decline in the early 1930s. The project’s objective is to promote works by well-known, lesser-known and unknown artists nowadays kept at various Russian regional museum collections, as well as to demonstrate the major techniques having prevailed in the Russian art throughout the first three decades of the 20th century.

Supervised by Adnrei Sarabyanov, an art historian and the author of a great number of works on the Russian avant-garde art, the exhibition is a joint effort of the Russian Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center, and the Modern Art Museum of Moscow.

The exhibition will run until May 5.
