Feminism: From Avant-Garde to the Present Day
March 25, 2013 12:22


The exhibition "Feminism: from Avant-Garde to the Present Day" opened on March 8 in the exhibition hall of "The Worker and Collective Farm Woman" monument. The exhibition put together the works of art from the best museums in the country - the Tretyakov Gallery, the Museum of Contemporary History of Russia, Vladimir Mayakovsky Museum, Moscow Architectural Institute Museum, Kuskovo Estate Museum. The visitors can learn about the "female side" of art - the 4 halls host the sculptures, paintings, posters of Soviet times, photo projects made by women. The pictures by the "amazons of Russian avant-garde" (the first female artists of the USSR) hang on the walls.

The theme of their works is the equality of rights. Therefore the paintings show a female builder, a factory worker or a sportswoman. The works of 60s hang nearby: documentary footages, photo projects, sculptures. The inflatable red angels soar on the ceiling in the hall of contemporary art. Here you can also see video art - documentary or feature films are projected directly on the gallery walls.

The exhibition is connected with the re-interpretation of the ideas of feminism today. At the same time it gives a historical perspective to the development of feminism art bringing together the key figures from the amazons of Russian avant-garde and the birth of Western feminism to contemporary artists.

Vera Mukhina`s monument "The Worker and Collective Farm Woman” became the most visible symbol of the victorious equality of the Soviet Union and can be seen as the most large-scale exhibit of the "Feminism: from Avant-Garde to the Present Day" exhibition. In its turn, the history of feminism art supporting the idea of the equality of rights takes on new meanings.


The exhibition will be open until May 12, Tuesday to Sunday 12 p.m. – 9 p.m.

The admission ticket costs 250 rubles.
