ART UNIONS AND CREATIVE UNIONS OF RUSSIA ON THE TURN OF THE XIX-XX CENTURIES (part 1)

Abramtsevsky (Mamontovsky) art circle – the so-called Representatives of the creative intelligentsia, mainly Moscow, united around the famous businessman and philanthropist S.I. Mamontov.

TALKS ON THE ISLANDS OF ART (part 3)

The desire for a new one, by all means, was imposed on art at the beginning of the 20th century. In canonical arts, in Russian iconography, for example, the artist was free from the search for composition. He directed all his internal energy to spiritualize the image. There is such an opinion in Russian philosophy of art: the more external limitations the artist has, the freer he is internally. I certainly do not call for this. Now this is impossible. Everyone just has their own way.
I also think that virtual worlds stored on infinitely renewable media, or printed with ink of dubious durability, can burst like soap bubbles at any time.
A pile of plastic garbage will be a monument to the 21st century. Continue reading
