Ninth Birthday of the Moscow Museum of Modern Art
When a museum celebrates its jubilee, like humans it invites its friends – other museums, receives presents and prepares something delicious for its friends. On the 6th of December the Moscow Museum of Modern Art celebrated its ninth birthday. Celebrations were helped along by Zurab Tsereteli, who is a warm entertainer as well as a senior museum offi cial. Olga Sviblova (Director of the Moscow House of Photography), an integral part of the modern Russian arts scene was there to congratulate the Museum, Pierre Brochet (collector), Mikhail Kamensky (director of Sotheby’s Russia), Alberto di Mauro (director of the Italian Culture Institute in Moscow) and many artists and art fans. Guests were treated to several courses of brand new exhibitions, a charity auction led by Kostya Tzyu and a musical dessert in the Ball Hall. And as for gift s, a recently restored and renovated building in Gogolevsky Boulevard is for sure one of the best presents the workers of the museum could imagine.
