The exhibition at Manege Central Exhibition Hall was originally dedicated to 120th birthday of Alexander Deineka, a famous artist of the Soviet period. Later it transformed into the confrontation between him and Alexander Samokhvalov. Deineka was closer to Moscow, whereas Samokhvalov was educated in our city. This competition of 2 cities and 2 artists led to the exhibition being designed in the style of a football stadium. The space is divided into 6 blocks: war, peace, labour, sport, heroes and children. Both artists were successful during the Soviet time and glorified it. Over 300 works of art were brought from 37 museums and 9 private collections. You can enjoy this wonderful exhibition up to January 19, 2020.
