Albert Watson. Dreaming. Pirelli Calendar 2019
As part of the XI Moscow International Biennale ‘Fashion and Style in Photography-2019’ the Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow presents Albert Watson latest project ‘Dreaming. Pirelli Calendar 2019’. For this year’s Pirelli Calendar, the celebrated Scottish photographer Albert Watson has created a series of vignettes centering on the dreams and aspirations of four successful and talented women - Julia Garner, Gigi Hadid, Laetitia Casta and Misty Copeland. Each ‘little movie’ shows the characters at significant crossroads in their lives. The result is 40 beautiful and cinematic images taken on location in Miami and New York all on the theme of ‘Dreaming’. The photographs, for the 46th edition of the iconic Calendar, were shot in colour and black and white using the cinematic 16:9 format, inspired by Albert Watson’s passion for the art of film. Until 12.05.19.

Gerard Uferas. A Day in the Museum
As part of the XI Moscow International Biennale ‘Fashion and Style in Photography-2019’ the Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow presents ‘A Day in the Museum’, an exhibition by one of the most famous Parisian photographers Gérard Uféras. In his new project Uféras acts simultaneously as artist, anthropologist and sociologist exploring an important modern cultural phenomenon, the museum. Interest in this phenomenon is not accidental. In the last few decades, museums have rapidly changed, there is massive interest in art and the public is growing younger. How does the public get their bearings in the museum, where apart from traditional guides there are now audio guides, QR codes and interactive phone applications? With the advent of new technologies and new museum functions, has the most important thing been preserved — that moment of personal contact between the viewer and the artwork? Uféras observes, records and analyses what is seen with subtlety and humour. The study undertaken by him is far more than just a clever and witty narrative about visitors to very diverse museums, it provides an opportunity for each one of us to see ourselves from one remove and reflect on our own relationship to art. Until 31.03.19.
