Correspondence from two angles

The exhibition "Correspondence from two corners", which for the first time presented the stock collection of the Association "Exhibition Halls of Moscow" and Gallery A3.
The history of the gallery's collection began in 1989 and after 30 years it has about 600 works by contemporary Russian and foreign artists. Only a small part of it is presented at the exhibition. The works presented to the gallery and personally to its first director Vitaly Kopachev are not only a sign of respect, but also a manifestation of special gratitude and friendship.
The name of the exhibition is associated with the correspondence that took place a hundred years ago between two prominent representatives of Russian culture - the symbolist poet Vyacheslav Ivanov and the literary critic Mikhail Gershenzon. In the summer of 1920, they found themselves roommates in a health resort and began to communicate, sending each other letters-messages from one corner of the room to another. The closed room of the room for the participants themselves was a stage or exhibition space in which creative dialogue could be realized.
The exhibition project can be viewed as a visual image of “correspondence from two angles”. On the one hand, the sensual works of artists Marina Leizgold, Vladimir Bashlykov, Tatiana Markova, Inna Ivanova, Khsara Gassiev. On the other hand, there are rational works by Clara Golitsyna, Alexander Pankin, Alexander Trifonov, Viktor Umnov, Nikolai Kasatkin, Marina Kastalskaya, Tatiana and Sergei Kostrikov.
