'Cosmorama 18th' at the Museum of Moscow

'Cosmorama 18th' exhibition is to take you back in time like a time machine. You will view authentic pieces dating back to the 18th-19th centuries, including rare optical mechanisms. Along with the items from the Museum of Moscow's holdings, the exhibition will include works by contemporary artists. Performances of actors and musicians will help to recreate the atmosphere of the past centuries.

The exhibition has been arranged by art curator Sergei Khachaturov and stage designer Stepan Lukyanov. It is dedicated to Moscow Governor General Mikhail Volkonsky (1713-1788) and a writer, scientist and philosopher Vladimir Odoyevsky (1804-1869).  By the way, the exhibition's name is a reference to the fantastic 'Cosmorama' story by Odoyevsky.

The artist Vladimir Kartashov will present a reconstructed Moscow square of the 1770s, while Vasily Butkevich and Pyotr Skvortsov, Brusnikin Workshop Theatre actors, will read a poem by Andrei Rodionov.

You will discover utopian Moscow projects of the 18th century. In addition, you will see the reconstructed Vladimir Odoevsky's study, as well as the writer and his heroes represented on the stage of the video theatre created by Gogol Centre's actors.  TV presenter Artyom Korolyov will share recipes of Prince Odoevsky's alchemical kitchen.

The project was created with the participation of the Historical Museum, the Museum of Architecture and private collectors.
