Magic Cage: Shall We Go to the Zoo?

December 8, 2015 – February 28, 2016

AZ Museum


Contemporaries considered animalier art of Zverev an outstanding feature of the 20th century. Collector George Costakis recalled: "Zverev’s wide-known zoo-visits with numerous notebooks, where he drew animals and birds, perhaps, were the top of his oeuvre".

Nowadays, the Zverev’s zoo can’t stop delighting and inspiring us. The project displayed about 80 works of the artist – gouache, watercolours, oil paintings. The exhibition was designed as an exciting game and entertainment. Halls of the show hosted the drawings by Zverev together with the dynamic visual effects and 3-D installations. On the third floor our guests had the opportunity to get into the virtual world of graphic works and painting by Anatoly Zverev.

Both young and adult visitors, just like Alice from the L. Carroll’s fairy tale, were able to face a marvelous animal would toe-to-toe. While all connoisseurs of the modern art could track the evolution of artistic fantasy: contemporary artists Alexey Politov, Marina Beglova and Katya Fillipova have entered into the dialogue with the virtuoso graphic works by Zverev.

Within the exhibition "Magic Cage", special children programs with master classes and New Year presents were held, as well as a series of lectures "Thursdays in the AZ Museum" that performed stories dedicated to the animalier art in the world.
