Dreams of the Universe. Modern Art in Russian Political History Museum
July 20, 2016 21:17

The exhibition continues the project Public Art on Political History of Russia and is timed to the 55th anniversary since Yuri Gagarin's flight to the outer space.

The exposition presents works by five artists: Dmitry Fedin, Alan Hatagta, Anastasia Belova, Oksana Petrova and Alexander Tsikarishvili. They were selected by a jury at the installation art competition that took place in the Russian Political History Museum from May 25 till June 24, 2016. All of these artists express their own views on romanticism of space exploration and dreams of space and time traveling across the Universe in unusual and sometimes paradoxical art forms.

For a long time the outer space was just a philosophical concept, so mysterious, attractive and unattainable. However, more than fifty years ago the man left the Earth for the first time and went beyond its limits into the outer space. Yuri Gagarin was the first of the Earth people to have fulfilled a long-time dream of the mankind to see this planet from the outer space. Space flights became a reality: the man got a real opportunity to study the Universe not only visually and theoretically, but practically as well. Over time heroic flights in the infinite space became daily occurrence, and stories about the space flight pioneers went down the chronicle of the mankind.

Star constellations in the night sky go on attracting people and making us dream of incredible discoveries and finding answers to the riddles of the Galaxy, at the same time reminding us of how great the world actually is. In several decades our descendants will reach other planets and be closer to uncovering the secrets of the Universe.
