MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

Four options for cultural leisure: an exhibition, two concerts and a movie.

Friday came again unexpectedly – the work week was about to be left behind. We offer to plan something interesting for tonight, until it is dark. We study the events of museums, cinemas and one park.

Spend the evening with Jim Dine

Time: until 21:00

Place: “Multimedia Art Museum” (Ostozhenka Street, 16)

American artist Jim Dine – one of the living pioneers of pop art. His wooden figures of Pinocchio and the bronze sculptures of Venus de Milo are no less famous than the cans of Andy Warhol canned soup or the comics of Roy Lichtenstein, with which Dean, by the way, was friends in his youth. The first Russian retrospectiveworks of the artist opened in September in the Multimedia Art Museum.

The exhibition includes 28 works from the collection of the National Center for Art and Culture Georges Pompidou in Paris, presented to the museum by the artist himself. Among them are the early “proletarian” assemblages with working tools, and the later “concrete paintings”, and the sculptures and graphic images of Pinocchio. The character of the fairy tale Carlo Collodi Dine loves especially and even considers it his alter ego. According to him, a wooden boy, whose nose grows because of lies, reminds him that the artist must be honest.

Listen to jazz

Time: 20:00

Location: Pavilion “Reserved Embassy” in Zaryadye Park (Varvarka Street, Building 6, Building 1)

Concert series “Jazz on Fridays”in the “charge” continues. The soloist of “Helikon-opera” and the owner of sensual mezzo-soprano Maria Maskhuliya and her jazz band will again enchant the audience. The program includes world jazz hits, excerpts from musicals and operettas, vocal cycles by Dmitry Shostakovich, Valery Gavrilin, Mikael Tariverdiyev, as well as songs from cinematographic films – for example, Over the Rainbow from Hollywood’s “The Wizard of Oz” 1939.

You can go to a concert for free. Need only registration on the park site.

Hear and see light music

Time: 20:00

Location: Memorial Museum A.N. Scriabin (Bolshoy Nikolopeskovsky Pereulok, 11)

The Scriabin Museum continues to celebrate its 100th anniversary. Today one of the key musical events of the festival “100 years of attraction” will take place here – multimedia concert Lucepiano virtuoso Pavel Shatsky and artist Maria Kononova. Works of Alexander Scriabin will be performed accompanied by video installations.

After the concert, a personal exhibition of Maria Kononova will open. The exhibition includes works inspired by the work of one of the most mysterious composers of the twentieth century, who combined light, color and sound in his works.

Watch the movie with Nicolas Cage

Time: depending on the selected session

Place: cinema network “Moskino”

If after a week of work you need to cheer up, go to “Mandy”Panosa Kosmatos – this film from the very first minutes will make you goggle and gather. Scary beautiful forest, disturbing music, Nicolas Cage with a power saw … But this is not terrible. Horror – ahead.

A quiet life in the wood hut of the woodcutter Reda (Cage) and his wife Mandy (Andrea Raizboro) – a saleswoman in a tiny shop and an artist by vocation – ends with the arrival of a gang of frostbitten sectarians whose leader put an eye on Mandy. It will all end badly, and it will continue even worse: the widowed hero of Cage will take revenge – and they will show us how he does it for a long time and in detail.

Panos Kosmatos manages to shoot bloody horror so that it is not disgusting and not scary to watch. The closest association is a fairy tale in which the hero goes to chop the head of the Serpent Gorynych one by one.
