The Art of the Brick

1 Apr - 16 Apr

"The Art of the Brick" is a global touring exhibition rated by CNN as one of the world's "Must See Exhibitions" and is finally coming to Moscow's Expocenter on February 23rd! These are the first art exhibitions to focus exclusively on the use of LEGO® bricks as an art medium and artist Nathan Sawaya has taken it to new heights. This award-winning artist has multiple unique exhibitions created solely from standard LEGO bricks often with several new sculptures created specifically for each exhibition. Each show has countless colorful LEGO pieces which Sawaya has transformed into whimsical and awe-inspiring creations. Sawaya’s ability to transform this common toy into something meaningful, his devotion to spatial perfection and the way he conceptualizes action, enables him to elevate what almost every child has played with into the status of contemporary art.

NAIV...NO

1 Apr - 30 Apr

The Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA) is holding two large exhibition projects called “NAIV...NO” ("Naive") and “Sotvorenie Mira” (“Creation of the World”). United by the theme of naive art, the exhibition puts the work of self-taught artists into the context of art processes of the 20th century and to find a point of contact between naive art and such radical art movements as avant-garde, conceptualism and primativism by demonstrating artworks of some of the contemporary naive artists from Russia and Europe. Art produced by so-called “non-professionals” was first flagged down by members of the still nascent avant-garde movement at the start of the 20th century. Works of self-taught artists were full of the power of spontaneous symbolism which became so in demand in the art world.

Apocalyptica

 

23 Apr 

With the way things are looking these days, we wouldn't blame you for thinking the apocalypse is coming. When and how that might happen - we don't know for sure, but here's one thing that's certain: APOCALYPTICA is definitely coming, and they're aiming Moscow with bows at the ready. Headed by three graduates of the Finnish music school Sibelius Academy, APOCALYPTICA shreds away heavy metal tunes...on cellos. At this concert, they'll be playing tributes to the infamous Metallica band, a throwback to the early days of their career.
