The Tretyakov Gallery presents a unique project timed to the centenary of the world's first state museum of modern art, the Museum of Painting Culture. It became a unique phenomenon in Soviet Russia once, as it was intended to change the mindset of artists and take up brand new perspectives in art.
The Museum of Painting Culture, Moscow, was founded by avant-garde artists, including Kazimir Malevich, Vassily Kandinsky, Vladimir Tatlin, and Alexander Rodchenko.
The exhibition tells the story of the Museum of Painting Culture, which existed as an independent institution for 10 years only. Afterwards it became a branch of the Tretyakov Gallery. Over that period, about 700 paintings, sculptures, posters have been collected in its funds. Visitors will see a one-time reconstruction of the exhibition, which ran in the museum in the 1920s.
