Lecture Highlights
The period of 1910-1920s is a rebellious and innovative time in Russian art. It is the time of slapping the public of taste in the face and creating the new revolutionary aesthetics. The time, when the culture of Russia was dominated by avant-garde.

Artists, poets, musicians were the hooligans and lofty dreamers, who fiercely argued with traditions and proclaimed the new art in a new world. They painted their faces and walked with wooden spoons in their buttonholes, striving to triumph over the sun, believing in technological progress and spaceflights.

The avant-garde has finally secured a place of honor for Russian art on the world art scene. It is the founders of the new art we are going to speak about on our lecture.
We will learn about the dispute between "physicists" and "lyricists" in the world of avant-garde and how Tatlin laughed at Malevich;
We will read the fence inscriptions in Larionov's paintings;
We will see the world's first abstractions;
We will discover the philosophical background of the "Black Square" and understand why we would not be able to draw a piece like that;
We will discuss how Kandinsky's colors sounded and tasted;
And we will find out why it would be good for weightlifters to play the violin.

Who is the lecturer?
My path in art began with classical music, from where I came to art history.

I am convinced that if you do something, you need to do it with the fire inside. Then you begin to see it in the eyes of those who are next to you. I love to use a creative, lively approach to anything that I do. I write articles about art and sometimes poetry.

I appreciate personal communication, the best addition to which is a cup of fresh coffee.

For me, art is a way to talk about what is important, about meaning, about the love that moves the Sun and the stars.
