The Soviet Past In The Exhibition The History Of Soviet Pavilions. Part I
June 24, 2013 12:34


There is a new exposition “The history of Soviet pavilions. Part I” in the museum and exhibition center “Rabochii I kolhoznitsa (A Worker and a Farm Girl)” (Mira ave. 123 B). It is organized by Moscow Department of culture, Museum and exhibition association “Manezh” and Museum of Architecture named after A. V. Schyusev. 

The project is devoted to participation of the USSR in international exhibitions. The participation gave the USSR the main opportunity to promote itself in global community, artists-pavilions’ authors - the chance of a brilliant career and international recognition. Rather quickly the country that used poor materials for the first pavilion (the interior design focused on imagination) became a powerful state, which could draw the territorial map by rubies, embed into the interior a copy of “Mayakovskaya” metro station in full size, set up on the exhibition hall the statue “Rabochii I kolhoznica (A Worker and a Farm Girl)” weighing 75 tons, dismantled and carried in 28 wagons of special train. 

Models of Soviet pavilions were presented at the retrospective exhibition; there were works of such architects as Ivan Fomin, Vesniny brothers, Boris Iofan, Karo Alabyan, and also sketches, drawings, photos, documents, film footage related to the history of the pavilions. Prizewinners are photographs by Alexander Rodchenko with sketches of Varvara Stepanova (1925), photo by Max Penson “Uzbek Madonna”, sculptures of Georgii Motovilov “Metallurg” and Yevgeniy Vuchetich “Swords into Plowshares” (1937). 

The exhibition “History of the Soviet Pavilions” details the change and development of architecture and interiors of the pavilions during half of the century. Most of the exhibits were never shown to mass. Now they can be seen up to 18 August 2013.
