FROM MONET TO KANDINSKY
After great success in Germany and Russia, the multimedia show FROM MONET TO KANDINSKY REVOLUTIONARY ART presents the most important art movements of late 19th and early 20th centuries: impressionism, pointillism, post-impressionism, cubism and expressionism. The rapid development of art is illustrated by the works of 10 remarkable masters of modernism in unique combination of HD projections, animated graphics and music. Claude Monet, Georges Seurat, Paul Gaugin, Vincent Van Gogh, Edvard Munch, Paul Cézanne, Juan Gris, Robert Delaunay, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky – they all had in common an invincible desire to transform art to the next level, to find new suggestive and visual forms to capture the tremendous upheavals of their time.
From Object Art to “Black Square”
FROM MONET TO KANDINSKY REVOLUTIONARY ART is a journey to the world of art at the turn of the century when revolution was all over the air. Not only political overthrows and wars shook the society to the very core, but great achievements of industrial revolution as well. Every year new inventions were brought to the daily life – telegraph, daguerreotype, radio, electricity, aeroplane etc. That was the time when plenty of new art movements emerged. They were all later united under a term «modernism».
In the beginning of the 19th century ideal images and plots of academic art no longer aligned with the times and reality. Impressionists were the first ones to explore new esthetics of actual moment, ordinary people and everyday subject for the paint. After this first rise changes were massive and irreversible. Scientific approach of pointillism and great suggestive of Van Gogh’s expressive brushstroke, sensual Tahitian girls of Gaugin, which were inspired by primitive art, diligent study of Cezanne who dreamed to find a new way of depiction forms and volumes – all these works left idealistic canons of past far behind and at the same time became a fundament of cubism and expressionism, which crucially changed the surface of fine arts and reveal the excess to the next level of comprehension. From copying the environment, the painters came to creating their own worlds. The object of art was no longer human life, but suprapersonal, supreme ideas. Kazimir Malevich –
the ideologist of suprematism – claimed that only objectless pictures are the act of «pure art» which made the artistic power of a human equal to power of nature.
FROM MONET TO KANDINSKY REVOLUTIONARY ART consists of 10 short films mainly devoted to the art of one artistic movement or to its representative painter, projected to large screens, placed at different angles in a huge multimedia room. Almost one hour long of an original and holistic work of art immersing the visitor into the world of extraordinary paintings. Famous masterpieces from museums all over the world easily get their new lives with the help of digital technologies because a hundred years ago the art of modernists was the first glimpse of the technological future.
The projections are changing from one to another, coming to life and moving in the rhythm of music and capturing the viewer into the flood of colors and sounds. Multimedia format made the dream of many modernist of combining paint and music became true.
