Inauguration of Three Exhibitions at ENEA, Moscow
November 25, 2016 12:31


Visitors will see Non-Ceremonial Portrait, Hundred Years of Russian Photography (1891-1991) and Quartet for the End of Time.
Three exhibition halls of the Moscow ENEA are presenting new projects on December 2nd: Non-Ceremonial Portrait. Art of the 20th Century, Photo Encyclopedia. Hundred Years of Russian Photography (1891-1991) and Take Off. Quartet for the End of Time.
Non-Ceremonial Portrait. Art of the 20th Century is an exposition dedicated to the history of the portrait genre development throughout last century. More than 100 of little-known, incomplete works of painters, sculptors, etc. will be displayed. That is the kind of works that can give the clearest picture of how such a phenomenon as a portrait was developing.
Most interesting are the sections dedicated to works by artists of the World of Art association (namely Zinaida Serebryakova and Léon Bakst), representatives of the Russian impressionism, avant-garde (Kazimir Malevich, Pavel Filonov), nonconformism, etc.
The exhibition hinges on the subject of a particular personality against the background of large-scale events and historical changes.
Where: Grain Pavilion No. 59.
When: from December 2, 2016 to March 5, 2017.

Photo Encyclopedia. Hundred Years of Russian Photography (1891 - 1991) is an exposition of 250 works by Russian photographers from the pre-Revolutionary years to the epoch of Perestroika (Restructuring). It demonstrates the best-known, recognizable photos, which appeared in many respects thanks to the rapid development of photography equipment at that time. Curators thoroughly developed the exposition's sections, having created "the ABC of the Soviet photo", an overall visual encyclopedia of its history.
The central message of the project is close connection between the history of taking photos, the photo character and the history of this country.
Where: Radio Electronics Pavilion No. 15.
When: December 2, 2016 – March 12, 2017.

Take-Off. Quartet for the End of Time is a visual-and-music improvisation by the artist Elena Skripkina and the curator Olga Shishko. It is based on the same-name work by the French composer Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992). The Quartet for the End of Time for the clarinet, violin, violoncello and piano (1940-1941) was composed by Messiaen in the concentration camp and first peformed to prisoners of war in Teresina, on January 15, 1941. Elena Skripkina develops Messiaen's idea in her multimedia installation. He said: "I wanted my music to help these miserable and exhausted people to rise over earthly troubles and feel this special state of the end of time". Birds symbolizing the freedom of flight played an important role in the composers' works. As conceived by the modern author, the installation of Quartet, which is a visual poem is located inside of the aircraft YAK-42.
Where: aircraft YAK-42 in the Industry Square (Ploschad Promyshlennosti)
When: from December 2, 2016 to January 10, 2017.

The Exhibition of National Economic Achievements (ENEA aka VDNKh) is located next to the VDNKh metro station in Moscow.
