Russian avant-gardist El Lisitsky exhibit to open in Tretyakov gallery


Tretyakov gallery and Jewish Museum and the center of Tolerance in Moscow open major retrospective exhibition of Russian avant guard artist El Lissitsky for the very first time, TASS reports.

About 400 masterworks were drawn from Tretyakovka funds and Russian private collections, as well as from abroad - Basel and Moritzburg museums, Van Abbemuseum in Netherlands, Centre Georges Pompidou in France and The Israel Museum.

The exhibit is divided into two parts. Jewish Museum and the center of Tolerance in Moscow introduces El Lissitsky art before he's indulged in the avant-garde period. Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val presents all Lissitsky's artistic stages, including the most famous one. Architectural projects, oils, collages, posters, manuscripts tell about the artists' formation.

Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets has shared that El Lissitsky's personality is yet underestimated as he played very important role in global avant-garde movement

The exhibition will conclude on February 18th.

Russkiy Mir


As the Russkiy Mir reported, residents of Papua New Guinea addressed the head of the Russian Orthodox Church with a collective petition to establish an Orthodox mission in their country. This proposal was put forward after Kirill Shrakbul, a priest and head of the ROC mission in Taiwan, had visited Papua New Guinea.
On September 1, millions of children in Russia went to school. And millions of their peers in Ukraine also went to schools. Everything seems to be the same: flowers, bows, well-dressed children, excited parents... And yet there is a difference and a very significant one: children in Russia go to schools to study in their native language. However, starting with this academic year, hundreds of thousands of Russian-speaking children no longer have this opportunity in Ukraine.
