Culture Picks
Moscow's cultural scene is famously enormous and varied - but where to start? Our arts-savvy editorial team trawl what's on offer, to bring you our selection of Culture Picks for your leisure time. Current and upcoming recommendations are:
22.02.20  19:00 Limp Bizkit (USA)
The rap-metal outfit Limp Bizkit was formed in Florida in 1994 by vocalist Fred Durst and his friend, bassist Sam Rivers. Rivers' cousin John Otto soon joined on drums, and guitarist Wes Borland completed the original foursome (later supplemented by DJ Lethal). By mid-1998, Limp Bizkit had become one of the more hyped bands in the burgeoning rap-metal scene, helped as well by more touring action -- this time with Faith No More and later, Primus -- as well as an appearance on MTV's Spring Break '98 fashion show. Limp Bizkit's much-anticipated second album, Significant Other, was released in June 1999, and it and the accompanying video for "Nookie" made the group superstars. Read more

29.11.19-23.02.20 Miles Aldridge. The Taste of Color
The Lumiere Brothers Photography Center presents the first Russian exhibition of British fashion photographer Miles Aldridge, which will feature more than forty of the photographer’s most recognizable works. “The King of Color” Miles Aldridge is a favorite photographer and cover artist for magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, GQ, Vanity Fair, Numéro, The New York Times and The New Yorker. On the one hand, his works fit perfectly into the aesthetics of glossy magazines, because in terms of their visual characteristics they correspond to society’s ideas of beauty. On the other hand, they criticize the ideals of the modern world and the system of which they are a part. Aldridge always frames a woman: beautiful, sexy, strong. Moreover, she often finds herself in situations or places that emphasize the roles assigned to her by society: wife, mother, housewife, lover. The ideal femme fatale appears before the viewer as an object of consumption, part of the world of consumerism. Read more

28.01.20-25.03.20 Salvador Dali. Magic art
The Russian public will receive a unique opportunity to become acquainted with the works of this genius painter. The Manege Central Exhibition Hall will host the exhibition Salvador Dalí. Magic Art, organized by the Link of Times Foundation and the Fabergé Museum in partnership with the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation (Figueres) and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid). The exhibition will feature over 180 works by Dalí: paintings, drawings, watercolors and engravings. The exhibition will be chiefly comprised of artworks from the collections of the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. Pieces from private European collections will also be on display. The exhibition will allow visitors to follow Salvador Dalí's long creative journey, studying every stage of his development as a painter. The paintings on display begin with Impressionist landscapes he made in his youth in the 1910s, and end with his final abstract canvases from the 1980s. Naturally, of particular significance is Dalí's more mature output, his Surrealist and Nuclear Mystical periods. These are represented in the exhibition by the paintings The Invisible Man (1929-32), The Sense of Speed (1931), Millet's Architectonic "Angelus" (1933), Enigmatic Elements in a Landscape (1934), Soft Self Portrait with Grilled Bacon (1941), Uranium and Atomica Melancholica Idyll (1945), Dematerialization under the Nose of Nero (1947), Maximum Speed of Raphael's Madonna (1954) and other masterpieces, all of which contributed to Dalí's global fame and reveal his inimitable style.

24.05.20  19:00 Green Day (USA)
Green Day is an American punk rock band formed in 1986 by lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist Mike Dirnt. Bay Area trio Green Day stormed the mainstream in the early '90s with their snarling, snotty brand of three-chord pop-punk, which was delivered with a heavy dose of anarchic attitude and headline-grabbing antics. Influenced by the late-'70s punk predecessors before them, they went on to introduce a new, younger generation to the genre. Major-label breakthrough Dookie was the jewel in the crown of their '90s punk era, a modern classic regarded as one of the most defining albums of the decade. Maturing in the 21st century, the band hit a career peak with 2004's Grammy-winning international success American Idiot, a socio-political rock opera that ushered in the next stage of their evolution as one of America's most acclaimed rock bands. The group has also won four Grammy Awards: Best Alternative Album for Dookie, Record of the Year for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams", Best Rock Album for the second time for 21st Century Breakdown and Best Musical Show Album for American Idiot: The Original Broadway Cast Recording. In 2015, 25 years after their debut, Green Day were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Green Day has sold more than 85 million records worldwide. Read more

27.05.20  20:30 Nightwish (Finland)
Following in the footsteps of the Gathering and Lacuna Coil (goth-influenced "symphonic" metal bands with female vocalists), Nightwish were formed in Kitee, Finland, in 1997 by keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen. Initially attempting to create acoustic music, he recruited trained opera vocalist Tarja Turunen, but soon added full metal band instrumentation in the persons of guitarist Emppo Vuorinen, bassist Sami Vänskä, and drummer Jukka Nevalainen. Nightwish's demos landed them a contract with the Finnish label Spinefarm, which released their debut album, Angels Fall First, in late 1997 (it appeared in the rest of Europe the following year). The follow-up, Oceanborn, appeared in late 1998 and made Nightwish a bona fide mainstream success in their homeland; the album reached the Finnish Top Five and spun off three Top Ten singles.
