Tolstoi Readings are an annual conference of the Research Institute of Theory and History of Fine Arts of the Russian Academy of Arts dedicated to the memory of its two distinguished art researchers Andrey V. Tolstoi and Vladimir P. Tolstoi who made a significant contribution to the study of Russian and Soviet art history.
The theme of the Conference in 2022 - “Art in the Soviet Union “Typological and Conceptual Aspects” is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics state. For 70 years of its existence and 30 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the attitude to art in the society and the art itself have drastically changed not once. The Organizers try to reveal the changing of landmarks and ideals during the century when the vane of political upheavals sometimes considerably changed the cultural policy of the Soviet state. The subtitle of the Conference – “mainstream and underground” sets the dichotomy or rather ambivalence of the artist’s existence in the Soviet public space.
