The Museum of Moscow, in conjunction with the gallery "Triumph", presents the first in ten years exhibition of the newest works by the artist, gallery owner and curator Alexander Yakut. "Neon".

The exhibition - the latest works of the famous Moscow artist and curator. Dark twilight canvases depicting the suburbs — highways, fields, and railway crossings — are filled with an internal glow. This explains the name of the exhibition.

The plots of the painter canvases are devoted to the suburbs, suburban reality - the phenomenon that today determined the existence of a huge number of inhabitants of megalopolises.

The image of suburban life, which we see in the works of Alexander Yakut, is far from idyll and appears to be a network of empty highways, level crossings, and high fences. The artist shows that the suburb is not an alternative to the modern metropolis, but its dark twin, a deserted space with life forces deflated from it, light and joy. Its suburb resembles the "reverse side of the moon", more precisely, the reverse side of Moscow, focused on over-centralization and overconsumption.

Consonant with the ideas of the artist and the organization of the exhibition. The architectural solution of the exposition is an elongated dark space, which, according to the artist, is associated with the favorite image of David Lynch - the night highway. For the entire length of this “highway”, on the right hand of the viewer, steles will arise with the author's works, as if born out of the dark.
