The Golden Age of Russian Avant-Garde is a large-scale exhibition project, created especially for the main exhibition hall of Moscow’s Manege Museum by Peter Greenaway (UK) and Saskia Boddeke (Holland) supported by the British Council.
The world premiere will take place in Moscow in April 2014 and will be one of the main projects of the UK-Russia Year of Culture 2014. The project will allow the wider public to acquaint itself with the most important works of the Russian avant-garde of the 20th century in the context of the media.
The project will continue Peter Greenaway’s animated series, including da Vinci’s Last Supper, Rembrandt’s Night Watch and The Wedding at Cana by Veronese. Greenaway himself defines this work as applied history of art: telling the story of art not with a text, but by the means of art itself.
