The theme of the exhibition: 
"Abstract Reality"

Abstraction is a free art that doesn't recognize any dogmas or rules. It retained dynamics, energy, life, but also acquired some elitism. The ability to rise above everyday life, to penetrate the artist's intention, expressed by non-objective painting, is not for everyone, but for the most sensitive and ready for this experience.

Each item is worthy of close attention, the participation of the viewer in its presentation to the world. Abstraction in painting, fashion and design is a surprise, courage, a real flight of fantasy. In addition, visitors will see amazing installations with their movement, ambiguity of interpretation and meaning. They will make the viewer puzzle over the message encoded in them.

We invite you to experience the beauty and musicality of abstract painting. According to the idea of ​​its founders, it's able to create a universal picture of the world order. Russian avant-garde artists (Kazimir Malevich, Vasiliy Kandinskiy, Mikhail Larionov) stood at the origins of abstract art. Their innovative ideas have firmly entered our everyday life, being embodied in architecture, modern design and fashion, and the ideas of urbanism. We invite you not to follow their path, but to pave your own way in the endless ABSTRACT space.

Wassily Kandinsky

" A form, even if it is completely abstract and similar to a geometric one, has its own internal sound, it is a spiritual being with qualities that are identical with its form."

Vasiliy Kandinsky

from the book "Of the spiritual in art"
