Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy in Moscow
October 11, 2017 16:51


The Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy is Russia’s first ever museum dedicated to the art of handwriting. The museum opening was initiated by the National Union of Calligraphers and the Sokolniki Exhibition and Convention Center, as well as the private collector, Alexei Shaburov.

"The mission of our project is to usher a beautiful healthy society."

Worldwide, particularly in Turkey, China, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, there are museums with permanent expositions of calligraphic works, whereas in Russia, this is the only museum of the kind. The official opening of the museum dates back to August 14, 2008.

Calligraphy is the art of deliberately distorting and modifying hieroglyphs to attain genuine harmony as a result.

The museum exposition presents unique samples of handwriting, including world masterpieces created by renowned calligraphy masters. The museum displays exquisite paragons of Slavic and European handwriting, of Jewish and Arab calligraphy schools, classical Japanese calligraphy, and ancient Chinese writing. All of them illustrate the history of calligraphy art and reflect new facets of fine art. Visitors will also see domestic and foreign books on the art of calligraphy, rare handwritten publications issued in single editions, and writing implements of the past and present.

Since the International Calligraphy Exhibition in St. Petersburg in September 2017, the museum exposition has increased more than fivefold.

This autumn, a true pearl of calligraphy has appeared in the museum collection - the handwritten Constitution of the Russian Federation, made with the participation of the National Union of Calligraphers. In addition to that, visitors will see works by the students of famous calligraphers - those who are just starting their way in this ancient art.

The Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy offers new and truly unusual synergy of painting and graphic art, as well as wonderful answers to the following questions: how to combine rest and cultural inclusion, what exhibition halls and art galleries to visit in Moscow.

The museum will be of interest to visitors of various ages and provide an excellent addition to the curriculum of both art colleges and comprehensive schools. As for students of profile educational institutions, it will serve them as an excellent illustration to the course of lectures and will become irreplaceable for the overall development and better understanding of painting and art techniques, described in various literary sources on fine arts.

The Pearl of Art

The opening of the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy, which has enriched the multifaceted palette of museums in Moscow, was certainly an outstanding event in the cultural life of this country as a whole.

The museum is located in the area of the Sokolniki culture and recreation park in the centre of Moscow.
