The Department of Art History and Art Criticism of the Russian Academy of Arts (RAA) and the Research Institute of Theory and History of Fine Arts of the RAA invite you to take part in the panel discussion “The Dialogue with Classics in the Context of Modern Creative Process”, that will take place in the White Hall of the Russian Academy of Arts (21 Prechistenka street, Moscow) on October 19, 2022 at 13.00.
Among the variety of the theme’s aspects, the aesthetic one seems to be of great importance for understanding of the role of the classical heritage. The timeless artistic perfection, life in time and space, high professional craftsmanship coupled with the concept of “the classics” remain the principle categories in the evaluation of the aesthetic status quo and the development of modern art.
The presence of classical traditions in today’s creative process is considered as indirect and multisided. The realities of today’s art practice urge us to discuss the following issues:
-The perception of classics in the space of modern time and its role in today’s creative process;
-The dialogue with classics in the context of the “big” art experiment and innovations;
-The classical standard and free search;
-The classical motif in the contemporary artist’s vision;
-The place of classics in new types of artistic activity;
-Is there a future for the classics?
