Russian Icons Examined: In Exhibition & On the Screen
When in 2005 - 2006 the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum presented the exhibition RUSSIA!, a retrospective of the greatest masterworks of Russian art from the 12th century to the present, filmmaker and scholar Nina Zaretskaya was invited to produce a documentary based on this extraordinary exhibition. The result was RUSSIA! The Drama of Art in Twelve Episodes, which complements video from the exhibit with expert commentary from art historians and curators, and dramatic re-enactments of select historic events adapted from Soviet and Russian films.

Ms. Zaretskaya will show several chapters of the film that focus on Russian medieval art, and early Russian icons in particular. Her lecture will discuss how the film developed from a mere reportage of the exhibit into an in-depth narrative of Russian cultural development, revealing the soul, character, and sensibilities of the Russian people through the amazing art they have created over the centuries of their complex and difficult history.
