Russia and the Arts International Conference | In artibus Foundation

Russia and the Arts International Conference

10 June 2016, 10:00–16:30

London, National Portrait Gallery, Ondaatje Wing Theatre

Supported by IN ARTIBUS foundation


Taking its cue from the exhibition Russia and the Arts: the Age of Tolstoy and Tchaikovsky, this international conference explores music, literature and the visual and performing arts in Imperial Russia in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Presenting new or little-known discoveries as well as works of world renown, speakers will consider the extraordinary creativity of artists, writers and composers such as RepinChekhov and Rimsky-Korsakov, and the intriguing dialogues and relationships that developed between them. While some of these figures favoured Russian themes and motifs, others drew their inspiration from western culture. The conference aims to explore the rich and complex ideas that resulted, as Russia’s creative talents nurtured visual, theatrical, musical and literary traditions of their own.

The conference will conclude with a musical performance by Anton Lyakhovsky of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.

Chronicles of the quarantine exhibition. Collector’s Dreams. Wishlist of Maxim Boxer. Part Seven
To leave the exhibition alone, only sometimes to bypass it by day or night watch, noticing the appearance of new things and their strange combinations, is the freedom of our searches and reasoning. Our invitation to think.
