SALVADOR DALÍ. SURREALIST AND CLASSICIST
On March 31, 2017 Fabergé Museum will open its exhibition “Salvador Dalí. Surrealist and classicist”. This will be the first time Saint Petersburg has hosted such a large exhibition of Dalí’s art, which will include more than 150 of the artist’s paintings and graphic works, provided by the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation in Figueres (Catalonia, Spain) and other museum and private collections. The exhibition follows the artist’s creative journey, beginning with the surrealist works of the 1930s that made him famous and concluding with his turn to themes of classical European art in the 1980s. The exhibition particularly emphasizes Dalí’s conceptualizations of the legacy of Italian Renaissance geniuses Michelangelo and Cellini and of Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Marking the centenary of the Russian Revolution, this exhibition explores Moscow as it was imagined by a bold new generation of architects and designers in the 1920s and early 1930s.
Drawing on rarely seen material, Imagine Moscow presents an idealistic vision of the Soviet capital that was never realised. Large-scale architectural drawings are supported by artwork, propaganda and publications from the period. Taken together, these unbuilt projects suggest an alternative reality for the city, offering a unique insight into the culture of the time.
Venue: The Design Museum, 224-238 Kensington High Street, Kensington, London W8 6AG.

Facing the future: Art in Europe 1945–1968
he exhibition covers a period of almost 25 years – a period of the century’s major war conflicts, new threats coming from highly destructive weapons and local wars that could easily transform into total ones. It is a period of collisions of the “cold war” that separated peoples with its “iron curtain” and the walls that, by the end of the 1960s, separated generations of “fathers” and “sons”, whose ethical expectations from one another were sometimes set too high.
There are over 200 artworks from Russia and 18 countries of West and East Europe. The museums having provided artworks for the exhibition include Tate Modern (London), Centre national d’art et de culture Georges Pompidou (Paris), Nationalgalerie (Berlin), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), Museée national Picasso (Paris), Museum Thyssen-Bornemisza (Madrid), “ZERO” Foundation (Dusseldorf), Fondation Beyeler (Riehen / Basel), MUMOK (Vienna), Museum of Independents (Warsaw), Museum Tinguely (Basel), Magyar Nemzeti Galéria (Budapest), Muzeum Naradowe w Krakowie, Olomouc Museum of Art (Czech Republic), Kunsthalle Emden (Germany) and other.

MAGRITTE. THE TREACHERY OF IMAGES
René Magritte, the magician of enigmatic images, is one of the key figures of the art of the 20th century. The SCHIRN is devoting a solo show to the great Belgian surrealist that highlights his relationship to the philosophy of his day. Magritte did not see himself as an artist, but rather as a thinking person, who conveyed his thoughts through painting. His entire life he sought to find a form of expression equal to that of language. His curiosity and affinity with great contemporary philosophers such as Michael Foucault resulted in a remarkable oeuvre, which is shown in a new light through over 70 works.
Venue: SCHIRN gallery, Römerberg, 60311 Frankfurt
Open: Thueday, Friday-Sunday 10 am – 7 pm
Wednesday, Thursday 10 am – 10 pm
