The Angel Orensanz Foundation and the Russian Academy of Arts proudly present the Russian Arts Festival, 2011.
As a cultural institution, Orensanz Foundation is proud to host this year again a festival celebrating Russian arts and culture in all its expressions. Our organization has established numerous links with Russia for the last twenty years, well promoting its artists, well bringing Angel Orensanz’s artwork to several Russian institutions, such as the Museum of Modern Art in Moscow, the Hermitage Museum or the Alexander Pushkin Museum, among others.
In this occasion, The Russian Arts Festival will pay special tribute to the Russian New Yorkers killed at the World Trade Center on 9/11, as well as to the artistic contribution of Zurab Tsereteli, director of the Russian Academy of Fine Art and a prolific artist with numerous pieces around the world. For this reason, and as a remembrance of the ones disappeared on those tragic events, the festival will present the exhibition “Photos of the WTC” by Anatoly Pronin and Angel Orensanz’s video for 9/11.
Other artists included in our program are Grigory Gurevich, Andrey Bogoslowsky, Alexander Kedrin, Serge Sinitsyn and Natalia Nordman.
Photography, sculpture, video and painting will be presented in our “Russian Month”.
We welcome you all to enjoy it!
