Rus­sia in the Lens. Ex­hi­bi­tion via IT

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - CULTURE AND ARTS -

In Tashkent, the State Art Mu­seum of Uzbek­istan has hosted two ex­hi­bi­tions or­ga­nized with the sup­port of the Min­istry of Cul­ture of Rus­sia.

One of them is the photo com­pe­ti­tion «The most beau­ti­ful coun­try» - this is a large-scale me­dia project of the Rus­sian Ge­o­graph­i­cal So­ci­ety, ded­i­cated to pre­serv­ing the wild na­ture of Rus­sia and fos­ter­ing a car­ing at­ti­tude to the en­vi­ron­ment through the art of pho­tog­ra­phy.

It was first held in 2015, and since 2016 it has be­come an an­nual event. In the rules of cre­ative com­pe­ti­tion there are no re­stric­tions on the age and place of res­i­dence of par­tic­i­pants. The main con­di­tion - pho­tos should be made only on the ter­ri­tory of Rus­sia.

In the com­pe­ti­tion in 2016, a to­tal of 23,000 do­mes­tic and for­eign pho­tog­ra­phers at­tended 110 thou­sand pic­tures. The old­est par­tic­i­pant of the photo con­test is 87 years old, and the youngest is only 5

The works of the par­tic­i­pants were as­sessed by the pres­i­dent of the Rus­sian Ge­o­graph­i­cal So­ci­ety Sergei Shoigu, as well as well-known pho­tog­ra­phers and cul­tural fig­ures.

On the walls of the Uzbek art space ap­peared the best pic­tures in the nom­i­na­tions «The most beau­ti­ful coun­try. Land­scape”, “Peo­ples of Rus­sia”, “An­i­mals”, “Young Pho­tog­ra­pher”, “Re­served Rus­sia”, “Macromir”, “Black and White Na­ture”, “Birds”, “The World in Our Hands”, “In­dus­trial Land­scape”, “The Es­cap­ing Her­itage” and “Un­der­wa­ter World”.

Vis­i­tors have ex­pe­ri­enced cold Rus­sian win­ters, thick Rus­sian forests and, of course, the rich flora and fauna of this coun­try.

An­other ex­po­si­tion is a vir­tual ex­hi­bi­tion pre­pared on the ba­sis of the col­lec­tion of the Rus­sian Mu­seum (St. Peters­burg) and shows more than 100 works of clas­si­cal Rus­sian art.

The col­lec­tion of an­cient works of the Rus­sian Mu­seum is ex­ten­sive and is one of the largest col­lec­tions of an­cient Rus­sian art. Its foun­da­tion was laid when the mu­seum was or­ga­nized in 1898. The col­lec­tion with great com­plete­ness rep­re­sents the his­tory of Rus­sian icon paint­ing from the 12th to the early 20th cen­tury. It in­cludes works cre­ated in dif­fer­ent art cen­ters of the his­tor­i­cal Rus - Nov­gorod, Pskov, Vologda, Moscow, Cen­tral Rus­sian and north­ern lands. Each of the works pre­sented at the vir­tual ex­hi­bi­tion is orig­i­nal and unique and at the same time bears the im­print of the art of its time. Col­lected to­gether, they al­low you to come into con­tact with the cul­ture of those epochs in which cre­ated the master who cre­ated them.

Thanks to the high-pre­ci­sion gi­gapixel pho­tog­ra­phy that is be­ing con­ducted in the Rus­sian Mu­seum in re­cent years, as well as mod­ern in­for­ma­tion tech­nolo­gies, mas­ter­pieces of an­cient Rus­sian art can now be seen not only in St. Peters­burg, but also far beyond its bor­ders. Mul­ti­me­dia films pre­sented at the vir­tual ex­hi­bi­tion are ded­i­cated to the im­ages of Je­sus and the Mother of God, the Holy Land of the Rus­sian and Rus­sian iconos­ta­sis. One of the films tells about a unique ex­hibit from the col­lec­tion of the Rus­sian Mu­seum a wooden pul­pit, which was in­stalled in the 15th cen­tury in St. Sophia Cathe­dral in Nov­gorod.

In Tashkent, the ex­hi­bi­tion was held as part of the visit to Uzbek­istan by the Pri­mate of the Rus­sian Ortho­dox Church, Pa­tri­arch of Moscow and All Rus­sia Kir­ill.
