While ties between India and Russia continue to scale newer heights following an informal summit last year, more and more Indians are being exposed to rich Russian culture. The spacious exhibition halls of Lalit Kala Akademi in Kota (Rajasthan) was the last venue hosting a moving art symposium “Opening Russia-2019”, which took place in January - February in several cities of Rajasthan, West Bengal and, of course, in the capital of India – Delhi, where the two-month art marathon started at Arpana Fine Arts Gallery at the very end of December.
The Moscow Museum of Modern Art presents an extensive solo show of Jaan Toomik, a world-famous video artist, painter and film director, often described as Estonia's most brilliant figure on the world art scene. The exhibition at 10 Gogolevsky boulevard entitled 'My End Is My Beginning. And My Beginning Is My End' features paintings, sculpture, short films and video art created over the last 20 years.
The timing of “Mini Wonders: Czech Toys Past and Present”, a touring exhibition hosted by the All-Russian Decorative Art Museum in partnership with the Czech Centre in Moscow, was darkly fortuitous. It opened in the end of 2018 to coincide with the holiday season, when traditionally more visitors including families with children, try snacking on the museums during a long vacation period over the New Year. Every year the museum offers colourful shows spotlighting antique and modern New Year tree decorations and toy design.
The star-sprinkled blue onion domes peppering the peaceful rural landscape, cozy wooden houses along a winding street and the beautiful Russian fortress of Alexandrovsky Kremlin are staring at you from the canvases showcased at Jawaharlal Nehru Cultural Center to the Embassy of India in Russia in Moscow, hosting the exhibition “Temples of Spirit: India and Russia” till the end of November.
