Contemporary art in the USSR and Russia 1950-2000. A major donation
In September 2016 the Centre Pompidou unveiled an extraordinary donation of more than 250 works of Soviet and Russian contemporary art assembled through the outstanding efforts of the Foundation, and presented to the Musée National d’Art Moderne thanks to the generosity of the Foundation and the collectors, artists and their families. Taking place in 2016 among a series of events paying tribute to the role of donors, the exhibition highlights once again their crucial importance to the development of cultural heritage institutions.
Without pretending to be exhaustive, this ensemble of works by major artists offers a panorama of some forty years of contemporary art in the USSR and then in Russia, covering the most important movements. The exhibition of these new acquisitions formed part of the programme of the Franco-Russian Year of Cultural Tourism.
