About the exhibition:
An exhibition of works of Ernst Neizvestny opened on 6th April 2017 in Yeltsin Center and allowed the master's fellow countrymen to get better acquainted with his works.
The exhibition aimed to popularize the artist in his home city – Yekaterinburg (then Sverdlovsk) and tell the public about his early works and show the process of formation of a creative personality.
More on the exhibition here.

Alabaster plinths with a rough finish, wooden display constructions – all those objects of importance to a sculptor subtly hint at the author's presence. As if the visitors have wandered into his studio and the works are waiting for their creator to return.

To visit the exhibition, simply use our 3D tour:
A few months after the opening of the exhibition and almost 30 years after the planned opening, Neizvestny's Masks of Sorrow monument was opened – a memorial to victims of Stalin's repressions.
