'Kirill Zdanevich. Tiflis — Moscow' at the Moscow State Museum of Oriental Art

The Moscow State Museum of Oriental Art is to host 'Kirill Zdanevich. Tiflis — Moscow' exhibition. This is the first solo exhibition of the famous avant-garde artist in Moscow. The exhibition includes over 80 paintings and graphic works from private collections, as well as archival documents and photographs.

You will view rarely exhibited graphic works of the 1910-1920's. At that time, Zdanevich was in the thick of the artistic life of Tiflis. He easily conducted various experiments; he created cubofuturistic compositions, painted landscapes and still-lifes, expressive and recognisable portraits. He also painted walls of artistic cabarets, made posters for poetic evenings of his brother Ilya Zdanevich and other debunkers of artistic authorities, illustrated their books, designed theatrical productions. Kirill Zdanevich was one of the first connoisseurs of Nico Pirosmani, he was his biographer and collector of his works.

Kirill Zdanevich's works were displayed at the Moscow exhibitions of the early 20th century, 'Donkey's Tail' and 'Target', as well as at the large-scale exhibition 'Paris — Moscow' (1981) and the exhibition 'Georgian Avant-Garde' (2016). His works are included in collections of major Russian museums, but it is for the first time that Moscow hosts his solo exhibition.
