November 28, 2018 the company "Takeda" together with MGHPA them. S.G. Stroganov and the Cultural Foundation "EKATERINA" will present the exhibition project "Breakthrough". Winners of the international creative competition among students of universities and art schools “Takeda. Art / Help. Breakthrough ”, as well as famous contemporary artists, will present their works in the framework of the large-scale complex project“ Takeda. Pain and Will "in support of the development of palliative care and new technologies in medicine. The exhibition will demonstrate how technology serves modern art, which, in turn, reveals the humanistic problems of our time. The curator of the project is art critic Mikhail Sidlin.
Andrei Potapov, CEO of Takeda Russia, head of the CIS region, commented on the idea of the exhibition: “The social and artistic project“ Takeda. Pain and Will ”was launched three years ago. With the help of the language of art, we talked about the importance of support and care for our patients; about overcoming oneself and circumstances; Today we are talking about new technologies and how they transform our lives. Advanced technologies open up new horizons in all spheres of human life - in industry, communications, art and medicine. Thanks to the development of medicine, people began to live longer, some of the diseases are gone, we learned to control a wide range of diseases - this is a breakthrough! ”
Project curator Mikhail Sidlin said: “The mission of the“ Takeda. Pain and will ”consists in the development of palliative care and new technologies in medicine. And here it converges with the humanistic tasks of art. “Those who are truly devoted to philosophy,” said Socrates, “are engaged, in fact only one thing is dying and death.” The installation of Socrates on a worthy end to life is supported by the medicine of the 21st century. Modern technologies make it possible to alleviate suffering. Art has a therapeutic function. And it turns to "eternal questions", being on a new stage of its development. The art of the 21st century is impossible without extensive technological baggage, and the technology of the 21st century is impossible without aesthetic fixation. The point of a complex art / technology balance is a breakthrough point. ”
About the exhibition
The theme of the 2018 exhibition - “Breakthrough” - reflects the state of the modern world. The American philosopher Alvin Toffler wrote half a century ago that we were breaking into a new era, and this leap can only be compared with the transition of man from the Stone Age to the world of the first civilizations. The exhibition will be presented on two floors of the Cultural Foundation "EKATERINA". On the first floor you can see 60 works of participants of the international creative competition among students of universities and art schools “Takeda. Art / Help. Breakthrough".
The exhibition on the second floor of the Foundation will open Sergei Mironenko’s canvas “New” (1990), which throws the bridge from “Moscow romantic conceptualism” to the era of new technologies. The most ambitious work at the exhibition will be a new installation by Olga and Oleg Tatarintsev, dedicated to the Russian genetics Vladimir Efroimson, who first described the altruism gene. November 21, 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of a scientist.
