The State Russian Museum in St Petersburg will exhibit archives, scripts and letters by Andrey Tarkovsky this September:
The exhibition is dedicated to the 85th anniversary of Andrei Tarkovsky (1932–1986), famous Russian filmmaker and film director. A renowned master of cinema, Tarkovsky gained international recognition during his lifetime. He is considered the creator of a new language in cinematic art, having introduced new aesthetics and philosophy to it and influenced its further development. Over the last 25 years, a lot of exhibitions and events dedicated to Andrei Tarkovsky and representation and musealization of his art have been carried out. Many creative people — filmmakers, artists, and photographers — have created a variety of projects thoughtfully reflecting and developing his principles and methods, using his symbolic and imaginative apparatus of artistic vision. ..
