ул. Ремизова, 10
On May 6 at 4:00 pm in the Gallery «Nagornaya» of the Association «Exhibition Halls of Moscow» there are two exhibitions - «Sad Embarassment» and «Color Transformation», opening the project «Private Collection», which introduce unique works of painting of the XX-XXI centuries, In which this distinctive tradition is creatively enriched by an individual author’s world-feeling.
Interest in the Armenian pictorial tradition is an actual phenomenon today. This is evidenced by the appeal of contemporary artists to the motives, themes, techniques and styles, characteristic of this ancient tradition.
The works of Nina Gabrielian, a supporter of the coloristic trend in painting, offer an analysis of color, its metamorphosis, transformations and transitions based on genre scenes, landscapes, still lifes and portraits inspired by travels to Armenia, Europe and Russia. Pictures of the artist inherent theatrical aspect. As the art critic Olga Kostina points out, Gabrielian «each image is built on the principle of scenic space, inside of which some fairy-tale action is unfolding...»
At the heart of chamber and lyric paintings of the representative of naive art Edmond Petrosyan (Diken) is a subtle philosophy. The laconism of the images of his biblical stories, genre scenes, unique mountain nature reveals the roots of the artist’s self-knowledge, his spiritual troubles, analysis and reflection of the present day.
More than 60 works will find a temporary shelter in the walls of the gallery «Nagornaya».
The unifying motto of the project is a special video showing about the art of Armenia.
The exposition is unique in that most of the works belong to private collections, among them - the collections of Anatoly Kitashev and Tigran Shahramanyan. Many paintings first appeared before the general public. The exhibition will be accompanied by a program that includes lectures, thematic discussions, musical evenings and excursions.

12 May 19. 00 «GRANET COLOR». FREQUENCY PHOTOS FOR FRIDAYS
Director Sergei Paradzhanov, USSR, 1968. 74 min. «Garnet color» (Sayat-Nova) is a poetic film parable by Sergei Paradzhanov about the great Armenian poet, master of love lyrics, Sayat-Nova, filmed in 1968 at the film studio Armenfilm. The author’s name is Sayat-Nova. In the film «Color of the Pomegranate», consisting of several miniatures, an attempt was made to show the spiritual world of the medieval Armenian poet Sayat-Nova who wrote in the Armenian, Georgian and Azerbaijani languages, the history of his love, the poet’s attitude to religion, secular power, the people. In the absence of the usual literary monologue, all the decisions of the author of the film lie in a purely pictorial sphere. «The color of the pomegranate» became the main film of Paradzhanov: it is the revived medieval Armenian frescoes that turned cinema into poetry. The fate of the film «Color of the pomegranate» was not easy: the world public will see the film only in the early 80’s. From the miraculously preserved working materials, the paintings in the 90’s will make an «author’s version», and the director Levon Grigoryan, who worked as an assistant in the picture, will mount his «Memories of Sayat-Nova.» After the show, a discussion part is planned where you can discuss your impressions and thoughts on the film.
