The growing verticals of modern skyscrapers, dynamic interchanges of roads and the accelerating rhythm of a city that is changing before our eyes have long been for its inhabitants a part of the familiar landscape. The speed of communication, be it moving in space and time or processing information, is synonymous with today. To stop this moment, to fix it as a document of the epoch, translating into the language of fine arts with means of painting and graphics, and, moreover, to aestheticize everyday reality - not every artist is taken. Creative Union of Artists of Russia, with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, the Russian Academy of Arts, Moscow Union of Artists, MGHPA them. SGStroganova initiates the solution of a difficult and interesting task: to investigate with the means of the figurative line of art this new reality, the new habitat. The exhibition project “Our World: New Reality”, which includes more than 60 authors and over 150 works of painting and graphics, for the first time so comprehensively shows at the exhibition site of the Moscow Union of Artists, in the hall at Kuznetsky, 11, the face of a growing metropolis, and rapidly changing life, and a portrait of a contemporary. Being at the same time the creator of the new world, and its inevitable hostage, the man of today feels himself as part of the passenger traffic, and a unique personality that forms around him the unique range of the individual. Artists are looking for bold perspectives, unexpected plastic generalizations and new plot-thematic lines, turning the landscape and the subject of modern life into an exciting opportunity to look at yourself from the outside, like a hero in theatrical scenery.
