With the support of SIBUR, an exhibition on Russian design will be held in Togliatti as part of the Formula of Good Deeds social investment program.
“The History of Russian Design 1917–2017” is the first exhibition in the history of modern Russia, which presents the best examples of Russian design of its three main periods: constructivism (1917 - early 1930s), the formation and development of the Soviet design system (1950-1980) and modernity (1990–2017).
The main goal of the project is to acquaint a wide audience with the history of domestic industrial design from the avant-garde to the present, showing the most characteristic patterns in one exposition.
The exhibition runs until July 27 and will be accompanied by specially prepared video content with archival materials and interviews by designers, as well as audio guides and an educational program. Residents of Togliatti will be able to attend lectures for free and learn about industrial design, graphic design and 20th century architecture. Entrance to the exhibition and lectures is free.
The curators of the exhibition project are Alexandra Sankova, director of the Moscow Museum of Design, Olga Druzhinina, development director of the Moscow Museum of Design, art historian, author of many publications on Soviet and European design.
Olga Druzhinina, development director of the Moscow Museum of Design and curator of the exhibition: “History of Russian Design 1917–2017” is a unique project that for the first time covers all stages of development of Russian design: constructivism and production art of the 1920–1930s, Soviet design of the 1960–1980– x, modern Russian design. Our main task was to tell about the domestic cultural heritage in this area, so the exhibition was conceived as an educational project: for each city we are preparing a lecture program with the participation of representatives of the local design community. We hope that in Tolyatti - a city with a rich history of industrial design - the exhibition will be interesting to both professionals and a wide audience. ”
