Alexander Dashevskiy and Petr Shvetsov at the exhibition "Russia. Realism. XXI century”

In the 11th of November in Russian Museum opens the exhibition «Russia. Realism. XXI century”.

The new exhibition in the Benois wing is aimed at presenting the various ways of development of the realistic tradition in works of contemporary Russian artists whose style rests on the border of academism, photorealism and other variations of this trend of the last decades of the XXth and beginning of the XXIth century. The exposition brings together the works by well-known, mainly young painters and graphic artists from St. Petersburg and Moscow. Authors are united by the aspiration to fix in sharp and sometimes provocative form the fresh view in which realistic tradition is regarded nowadays.

On the exhibition you can find artwork by Petr Shvetsov "Children and a bear" and artwork by Alexander Dashevsky from the project "Swimming pool".

The exhibition will open till january 2016.
