Dear visitors! Note that the AZ Museum will be closed from January 16 to February 8 due to the exposition change. New exhibition will open on February 9.
The exhibition project "Zverev-GALA" prepared for the three year anniversary of the AZ Museum.
Translated from French, "Gala" means festival, celebration. And that’s exactly how Zverev-Gala performance was displayed — the whole museum space the artworks by Anatoly Zverev from the AZ Museum collection.
Author and curator of the project Polina Lobachevskaya writes: "Zverev is a holiday. Zverev is a triumph over the prose of daily routine. Zverev is a constant performance. Zverev is always a discovery. That is why, "Zverev-GALA".
"Zverev-GALA" is the seventh exhibition project in the museum. The exposition, unfolded on three floors of the Museum, included over 250 works of different genres — portraits, landscapes, abstractions, series of suprematist works and illustrations. The major emphasis of this exhibition was the incredible diversity of the Zverev oeuvre.
Included in the exhibition were a series of illustrations for the story of Nicolas Gogol "Dairy of a Madman", created by the artist in 1955. This was the first time when these materials were exhibited. A well-known Russian animation film director Mikhail Aldashin created an animated movie specially for this section of the exposition.
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.
