    "Abstract Art in Italy. Umberto Mariani"
    "Abstract Art in Italy. Umberto Mariani"
    Umberto Mariani (b. 1936), a remarkable post-war exponent of Italian abstract art, is renowned for his complex draperies on unevenly shaped canvases. His works investigate the illusion of light and shade created within folds of fabric. Mariani has always been interested in the question of the canvas’s 'tangibility' and he interprets sheets of lead as dense, heavy textiles, a 'mute' material that is called upon to create a sense of the liberation of the picture space, out into the world. This has reference to a whole segment of post-war Italian art history, to areas of artistic investigation first opened up and developed by Lucio Fontana in his spazialismo (Spacialism) and his famous buchi (holes) and tagli (slashes). In Mariani’s works drapery emerges by following the strict laws of construction. Although his preparatory drawings are largely intuitive, each composition is then carefully worked up before being executed with scrupulous care.

    "PUSHKINGRAD" Festival dedicated to the 220th Anniversary of the Alexander PUSHKIN Birth
    Pushkin Petersburg is a unique phenomenon of Russian culture. It is impossible to imagine St. Petersburg without Pushkin, but the poet’s life without St. Petersburg is unthinkable. Here he spent his best years of youth, on the Neva banks he gained fame as the first poet in Russia, here his life was tragically cut short. Petersburg glorified by Pushkin’s poetry became a part of his poetic world. In the year of the 220th anniversary of the Alexander Pushkin birth Museum of Urban Sculpture will hold a Festival "Pushkingrad". Petersburg residents and guests of the Northern capital of Russia will be able to visit exhibitions, excursions and other events that will take place throughout the year in all branches of the museum.
