X Moscow International Exhibition "Doll Art"
The 10th exhibition of Teddy’s author's art collection dolls and bears “Doll Art” will be held December 13-15. The organizers have prepared a powerful anniversary program this year: dozens of projects, each of which could be a full-fledged independent exhibition, the audience will see on one site of the Gostiny Dvor. The architecture of this space makes it possible to organically exhibit here both classics, and antiques, and experimental modernist and postmodern collections of contemporary doll artists. And the contemporary art of dolls is so diverse and multifaceted that it is impossible to determine its general trends or style: everything living, everything developing, everything with great potential for the future.
The Gostiny Dvor is a unique opportunity for the organizers to gather all the best and famous, famous and beginners, noted with all possible awards and only taking their first big steps. The geography of participants is about 30 countries. The number of works cannot be counted. And viewers, of course, go to this famous exhibition not for quantity. Lovers go to admire the fabulous beauty of the best puppet divas from around the world; sophisticated collectors in a hurry to see new talents and the latest works of the masters; artists with bated breath are waiting for evaluations of critics and colleagues in the creative workshop. “Doll Art” is an event where the most high-profile discoveries, the most sensational sales, the most important meetings of the year happen.
