The famous director Irakli Kvirikadze created the film "New Flight to Solaris" for one of the largest art projects of the AZ museum "Free Flight". That exhibition associatively united the names of the great Russian film director Andrei Tarkovsky and his contemporaries — nonconformist artists, who pioneered the Unofficial Art movement in the second half of the 20th century.
Creating a movie based on the AZ Museum film materials that had been directed over the course of three years, Irakli Kvirikadze masterfully combines on-the-spot reports and archival footage. “New Flight to Solaris” is not just a story about the artists, the characters of the exhibition and their works, but an attempt to understand the whole value of what the epoch of the “Soviet Renaissance” was for the artistic life of the second half of the 20th century.
If you did not manage to visit the exhibition in the New Tretyakov Gallery, or if you visited it but want to remember what it was like, now you have such an opportunity.
We recommend travelling to Mayakovskaya metro station. The walk to the AZ Museum will take around five minutes. After leaving the station, turn first to the right into the alley, then moving forward, at the first intersection, turn left to 2nd Tverskaya-Yamskaya street. Walk a few meters. AZ Museum will be on your right.
There are paid parking spaces on either side of 2nd Tverskaya-Yamskaya street or in the nearest alleys. Parking is limited, and on weekends and public holidays, the parking lots may be full.
