Unusual exhibition opened in the Tver modern art center "TverCa" at the River Station is supposed to prove that Russia is for all nationalities.
At the insistence of art dealer Marat Gelman it is Tver that is hosting the new art project Russia is for All by Victor Bondareno and Dmitry Gutov. The project to be further presented in Nizhni Novgorod, Perm and St.-Petersburg, has been for the first time open to public in Tver. The exposition turns to be too simple though unexpected: on the museum walls there are only names of famous people and their nationalities – there are neither portraits nor comments. Alexander Nevsky is the grandson of an Ossetin woman, Victor Tsoy is the son of a Korean father, Vladimir Vysotsky is the son of a Jew father, Andrei Bogolyubsky had Polovtsian mother, Bella Akhmadulina is a Tatar, etc.
