UK-Russia Year of Culture Preview Magazine 2014
Russian Art and Culture collaborated with Russian Mind to produce a preview for the UK-Russia Year of Culture in 2014. The issue featured interviews with Valery Gergiev, Igor Tsukanov and curators from The Tate and Science Museum.
Russian Art Journal
Released in December 2012, this publication showcased the writing of graduate history of art students. The journal offered a unique platform for graduates to have their work recognised and read by leading academics and members of the public.
We held our writing competition on any period or subject within the field of Russian/Soviet art. As a result we received a wide range of essays from The Wanderers, Moscow Conceptualists and religious iconography to studies on specific artists. The top six entries were published in our Russian Art Journal, sponsored by Evgeny Lebedev, the proprietor of The Evening Standard and The Independent newspapers. We were also lucky in having a distinguished panel of judges which consisted of Professor John Milner from the Courtauld Institute of Art, Dr. Maria Mileeva and Dr. Natalia Murray, from the Cambridge Courtauld Russian Art Centre.
