held on September 24th – November 22nd, 2020
Many historical buildings are left in St. Petersburg, the capital of the Russian Empire. ERARTA Museum of Contemporary Art is located in such a beautiful city. As the contemporary art’s hall of fame in Russia, the museum has tried to find and collect contemporary artworks, do research and aim to spread them globally. The name, ERARTA is the combination of the two words “Era” and “Arta”, which shows “era of the art”. They have supported not only the great masters but also newly artists with lots of talents. The museum also has a role as an international gallery. They sell living artists’ artworks and support them financially.
The title of the exhibition is “SAMURAI FOTO. Masters of Contemporary japanese Photography”.
There were also questions with illustrations on the board. Visitors tried to guess the name of the tree by its leaves, flowers and berries. It was unique to the biology museum that all the generations could learn with enjoyment.
We all thank everyone who came to see our photo exhibition even in a difficult situation. And we are deeply grateful for all staff in Erarta Museum and Andrey Martinov. Thank you so much for your help and warm affection.
