Interactive museum hosting art exhibitions of different eras and styles in conjunction with Russian and foreign museums, art funds, as well as private collectors and artists.
The underground museum is built around the preserved white stone base of the Kitaygorodskaya wall which was erected in the 16th century. A fragment of the monument was discovered during archaeological works before the construction of Zaryadye park. A long time ago on the place of the museum was located the very first street in Moscow – Velikaya. Now in the underground space adjacent to the Moskvoretskaya embankment, a museum with multimedia projections and interactive panels takes place.
In 2020, in the frames of the exhibitions cycle #three, Underground Museum will represent art from different eras and styles — like a visual book, combining painting and sculpture, with multimedia immersion in the biography of artists and the historical context. The semantic center of each exposition will be three artworks, accompanied by video installations.
The first exhibition of the cycle #three_ took place from January 14 to February 2 and was dedicated to the work of Alexander Vinogradov and Vladimir Dubossarsky. Underground Museum introduced three joint works of the artists: “Bella”, “Goluboy Ogonyok” on Shabolovka (Gagarin & Tereshkova)” and “Neighbour”. The multimedia part of the exposition included fragments of the film by Alexander Shein and Evgeny Mitta “Vinogradov and Dubossarsky: Custom Made Painting”.
From 5 to 24 February, in the frames of the cycle #three_, the museum hosted an exhibition dedicated to the work of one of the key masters of the Russian avant-garde, Aristarkh Lentulov. Visitors will see the paintings “Greek. A Sketch of the Fresco” (1910), “Portrait of M. P. Lentulova in a Blue Dress” (1913) and “Portrait of M. P. Lentulova next to a birch” (1914–1915). The three innovative paintings are complemented by archival materials, telling about the artist's life and periods of his work. There are also picturesque landscapes of Fedor Lentulov, the great-grandson of the avant-garde artist, on display.
Underground Museum is located in front of Gastronomic Сenter in the underpass from the park to Moskvoretskaya embankment. Visitors with special needs can use the elevator.
