Launched in 2011, Russian Art and Culture is the most popular online platform in Europe dedicated to this subject. The site allows academics, researchers and interested members of the public to read about the latest developments in Russian art, theory and criticism. Its mission is to provide the best reviews, articles and news on Russian art and related exhibitions as well as interesting cultural events. The website also acts as a comprehensive directory of useful information such as lectures, jobs and academic resources. It acts as the bridge between the academic community and the commercial art world, bringing together some of the world’s top scholars and journalists. We update our website daily with news, articles and interviews. Check out our calendar for the latest listings of Russian cultural events including exhibitions, concerts, talks and conferences taking place near you. Our readership is predominately in the UK, Russia and the United States but we publish events from around the world.

This website was first launched as a blog in response to the successful ‘Cultural Exchange: Russia and the West’ conference at the University of Bristol organised by our Editor, Theodora Clarke, in 2011. In 2012 we launched our sister site Russian Art Week and published the first guide to the week. In April 2014 Russian Art and Culture was nominated as one of the Top Ten Arts and Culture blogs at the UK Blog Awards 2014 alongside Tate Modern and the British Library.
