Exhibition of Old Street Signs Opens in Moscow

Exhibition All for Sale - a collection of street signs from the late 19th century to the 1980s from museums and private collections - has been opened in Small Manege.

The exposition is divided into sections: here there are not only pre-revolutionary signs, but also standard city signs of the 1970s - 1980s “Drugstore”, “Repair of Umbrellas”, “Vodka”, etc., which also deeply went down in the Russian pop history in only three Post-Soviet decades.

This genre allows uniting cash registers decorated with modernist style ligature, Pirosmani's and Peter Konchalovsky’s signs, and tea boxes at one exhibition.

However the charms of most of exhibits, even though they are production things, lie in their individuality. Sketches of show-windows of the 1960s show the process of search of a plastic decision, easy and original. Unfortunately, exhibits of this period are very few here.

Most vividly the Small Manege presents the subject of food; after all, the population needs food more than nails.

The exhibition runs till March 17.
