The museum and exhibition halls of Tsereteli Art Gallery are housed in a beautiful Moscow historical building in classical style, once the residence of Counts Dolgorukovs. It was designed by Matvei Kazakov in the 18th century. During Soviet times the mansion fell into decay. Today, as a result of enormous restoration efforts one can see its facade and interior in their original splendor.

 

Tsereteli Art Gallery was opened to the public in March, 2001 to provide exhibition space of more than 10.000 sq. m.  The complex also contains an art shop and Artist’s Gallery restaurant which interiors continue the museum exposition. 

 

Set up as part of Zurab Tsereteli’s reform program as President of the Russian Academy of Arts, the Gallery started its activities with Imperial-Russian Academy of Arts Exhibition dedicated to the history and present achievements of the Academy.

 

On display is a permanent exhibition of Zurab Tsereteli’s works of art, including his paintings, sculptures, drawings, enamel panels and bronze miniatures. Of special interest is the master’s unique series of bronze high relief portraits of celebrated figures of Russian culture of the 20th century entitled My Contemporaries.

 

The Gallery’s atrium presents a big exposition Good Defeats Evil. The focus of the atrium is a huge bronze apple, inside which visitors can trace the history of human passions from the Fall. Around the perimeter the walls are decorated by Tsereteli’s monumental reliefs on the Biblical topics depicting the spiritual rebirth.   

 

The ground floor contains halls exhibiting a large collection of casts from antique sculptures. One can also see a rotating display of the most valuable pieces of the rich collection of the Academy Research Museum as well as work by the Academy alumni. This part of the Gallery is used as educational facilities for students from art schools, lyceums and institutes. Here, Zurab Tsereteli gives his monthly masterclasses for children of different ages.

 

The Gallery hosts group and solo exhibitions featuring all kinds of fine arts, design, architecture, photography. On a regular basis are held big Russian and international art projects and festivals.

 

For connoisseurs of classical music the Gallery offers evening concerts involving celebrated singers and musical groups.
