About museum

Intemporism – the term “intemporism art” owes its origin to the Stavropol artist Yevgeny Kuznetsov, who, in January 2007 in the project of the Academic Art Gallery “Aves” at the opening day in the Manezh, exhibited a historical painting entitled An Instrumental Piece. “Intemporary art” (from English Intemporary art) – timeless art, eternal, infinite, in perpetuity, combining the perfection of academic drawing and modern pictorial and semantic interpretation, and the use of a variety of technical and stylistic elements to create a visually accurate picture depicting an indefinite time action, which gives this image a symbolic meaning and a timeless fusion of romantic dreams and reality. Some of the main museum tasks are the practical implementation of a personal civic position and a program of preserving and reviving the traditions of Russian art, which raises the cultural competence of vacationers and residents of the Stavropol Territory of the Russian Federation.

The world in which we live is changing, and museums are changing too. But the main thing in it remains unchanged – what has been created by the wonderful masters of our country for many centuries, and that today and tomorrow will always appear before the eyes of millions and millions of viewers. Therefore, the private museums, both in Russia and abroad, are of enormous importance to people.

We, a married couple, Gennady and Larisa Polyakovs, before retirement, collected a large collection of paintings by artists of the Stavropol Territory. And in our own, non-residential premises in the resort town of Zheleznovodsk, on Mironenko street, building 6, the Caucasian Mineral Waters Region, the art museum of Russian Intemporism opened for tourists at the resort.

With the aim of developing cognitive tourism in the Stavropol Territory, and in order to increase the importance of the Russian province, in 2007 we switched to public educational activities, changing the image of the Aves Academic Art Gallery to the Museum of Russian Intemporism – the keeper of the traditions of realistic academic art, traditions of the Russian art school, traditions to draw competently, to create with paints, compose compositions, and serve the art. We try to show our public, vacationers, and collectors, what is considered the high word, “Art”.

Culture and art always need the kind support of sponsors and benefactors! After all, “there should not be people blind to beauty, deaf to the word and real music, callous to good, forgetful to the past!” – academician Dmitry Likhachev. Here we are, the family couple Gennady and Larisa Polyakov, the founders, owners, and curators of the Museum of Russian Intemporism from the funds and collection of paintings of the Aves Academic Art Gallery. We decided to take part in compiling the register of private museums in Russia.

The tasks are to display the diversity of the surrounding natural world and human relations through the works of artists from the early 21st century, and to explore the modern art process.

It’s time to create New Russian Art; the nationality of the artist is not important.

The main thing is to feel like an artist of the Russian world in the modern classical art of the Renaissance.
