River of Time Graphic Works from the series “Our Collections”
The exhibition features more than 60 artworks by 37 Belarusian artists celebrating their jubilees in 2016 aged from 70 to 130 years from the museum collection. The dates of the exhibited works are from 1918 to 2009. Most of the works were created between 1960 and 1980 that are most fully represented in the museum’s collection.
The main goal of the exhibition is to show the creative activity of artist, his aesthetic qualities, to bring to recollection a history of art and to see a reflection of different epochs in it. Every artist captures his own world of view in artworks, however such “ sketchy” exhibition do not give a possibility to show a vision of every work. There are only fragments, quotes from artists’ creative work. These are not the “collected works”, but “collection of aphorisms”. May be an individual artistic manner is underlined by contrast of direct comparisons and mosaic of time.
