Memorial Museum “S.T. Konenkov Creative Studio”

The Russian Academy of Arts and Memorial Museum “S.T. Konenkov Creative Studio”, the Archives of the Russian Academy of Sciences present a solo show of works by the Academician of the Russian Academy of Arts, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Tolstikov entitled In the Mirror of a Portrait.

What happens when the past meets the present and vice versa? Where is the border between the two time spaces and can the images of the past correlate with the reality of these days? Sometimes we so much want to hear their voices subdued long ago in the noise of today’s world oversaturated with sounds. What is it going to look like – a theater or mirror? The veil of secrecy can be lifted by the continuation of  the “Dialogues”  project-experiment that in the space of an old studio with an absolutely extraordinary atmosphere will unite the great sculptor’s masterpieces with works of the contemporary master of painting. The viewers of the exposition of paintings by Alexander Tolstikov in the Memorial Museum “S.T. Konenkov Studio” are invited to see a hidden dialogue of the present and the past and to feel the mysterious world of portrait images creation.
