Galerie am Maxmonument, Thierschstr. 42, Munich, Germany, will host the opening ceremony of the ”GLIMPSES OF DIAGHILEV'S ”BALLETS RUSSES”: Russian modernism in Indian silk” exhibition of modern design artworks on February 19 at 19:00
to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the Diaghilev theatre companies in Europe.
The artworks by the famous Russian modernist artists that were used in the Diaghilev theatre company ballets still arouse great interest of the audience. Sotheby's auction house organised an exhibition in honour of the 100-year anniversary of ”Ballets Russes” in Paris in 2008. One could see about 150 paintings, sketches, costumes, decorations, drawings, sculptures, photographs, manuscripts and programs there.
The interior artworks by modern designer Juliana Nico of ART & SILK DESIGN-ATELIER presented today continue this tradition in a sense. Made in unusual polychrome silk, they not only reproduce the brilliance and picturesqueness, but also create a new interpretation of the works by famous theatre modernist artists from the Diaghilev circle - Leon Bakst and Aleksandra Ekster.
The exhibition will be held from the 19th of February to the 11th of March at the Galerie am Maxmonument, Munich, Germany.
