The Woman. Immersion
May 16 - July 28, 2019

The exhibition of works by the Monegasque photographer Olivier Jude, which offers a glimpse into the unique underwater world of the ocean. This solo show is the latest installment in the Ekaterina Foundation's long-term project of cultural exchange with art institutions of Monaco. In 2004, the Foundation presented the grandiose exhibition of the "Jack of Diamonds" in Monaco. Many collaborations with the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco had its key moment with the "Years of Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco" exhibition that showed in Moscow in the halls of our foundation in 2008. In the collaboration with the New National Museum of Monaco in 2009 was created the exhibition "Surprise Me! Sergey Diaghelev and Russian Ballet Seasons" which was later shown at the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow. In 2015, the halls of the Foundation hosted an international contemporary art exhibit "On Sharks and Humanity", brought by the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.

Blind Spot
April 18 - 28

A blind spot is an innate particularity of perception. Human beings are used to not noticing many things that remain in this gap, moreover, our vision often extends only to essential aspects of life that suffice for a comfortable existence.

The rugged terrain of the exhibition, which cannot be mapped in detail, is the result of various transformations the students undergo during their course. Its landscape is composed of linguistic ornaments and also the remnants of non-linguistic communication, translation of speech into the visual and the visual into sound.

Dmitry Lyashenko's exhibition "#moon_is_ours", organized in cooperation with E.K.ArtBureau. This project is about the impossibility of escaping your own self, no matter how far you travel, even if you are going to the Moon. It also urges the visitors to bear in mind that technical breakthroughs and innovations do not necessarily guarantee changes for the better.

The boundless outer space is something people have been interested in for ages, but whereas they could only dream about space travels before the second half of the 20th century, nowadays, flights to the Moon no longer seem to be out of the ordinary. Colonization of Mars, space tourism and other suchlike things, which previously belonged in sci-fi novels and films, are something we see in news broadcasts on the TV these days.


January 23 - March 24, 2019

Group exhibition New Landscape features seven photography projects exploring the landscape as a means to reflect on the new post-Soviet culture. The artists focus on the everyday and the mundane, that which is habitually ignored yet provides abundant information about contemporary Russian society.

The changes that Russia has undergone in the recent decades have been dramatic and they are clearly manifest in the landscape. The global transition from the industrial society to the post-industrial has been augmented by Russia's transition from the planned economy to the free market, from the Soviet to the post-Soviet. Uniform shopping malls, gated communities, urban sprawl - for the featured artists all these come as manifestations of the new post-Soviet landscape being born. Brought together the works create a portrayal of what may be a transformation of a landscape and a culture unprecedented in scale and pace.

The Soviet statesman who had the talent to be boss of Ford or GM

Russia Beyond the Headlines / November 24, 2016

A new exhibition of photographs in Moscow is dedicated to Soviet reformer Prime Minister Alexei Kosygin.

Oleg Tselkov: la liberté du prisonnier

La Dame de Pique / June 30, 2014

«Prisonnier.» C'est le mot qu'Oleg Tselkov emploie pour parler du rapport à son art. Il se sent prisonnier dans sa création. Et ce constat, il le fait tout sourire. C'est un prisonnier heureux, accompli, libre. Cette prison, il a commencé à la bâtir lui-même en 1960 lorsque le premier de ses personnages s'est invité dans son œuvre, pour très vite ne plus laisser place à d'autres thèmes, à d'autres inspirations, à quelque intrus que ce soit. Aujourd'hui, il n'a plus vraiment le choix. Inlassablement, il peint ces étranges figures...
