Mikhail Roginsky Foundation in collaboration with Ca’Foscary University of Venice are presenting an exhibition project 'Mikhail Roginsky. Beyond the Red door' in the course of Venice Architecture Beinnale 2014.

The name of the exhibition refers to a well-known work of Mikhail Roginsky – 'Red Door' (1965), which is often seen as a landmark work of russian underground art. This art object is included in the show, but mostly as a marker, a milestone work, as the show is entirely dedicated to the Paris period of artist’s creation work (1978 – 2004).

The announced theme for the Venice Architecture Biennale is “Fundamentals”. The project’s top objective is through the example of an outstanding Russian artist to draw attention to the fundamental part of the art of painting, based on the benefits of it’s immanent aspects - colour, form, construction. All the experiments held by Roginsky dealt mostly with basic conceptions of fine arts.
The exhibition comprises 8 sections, each of which is dedicated to a special artistic challenge Roginsky had been solving during at a particular period of time. At the same time curators didn’t have any special intention to be strictly faithful to the chronology of events, focusing on the ideological and substantial ways of presenting artist’s diverse legacy.
