The show is the result of long preparation and is expected to be a glittering feast of 25,000 years of art history.
The masterpieces on show will represent cultures and movements extending in time from earliest prehistory right through to the 21stcentury. Visitors will experience a journey through time and space, covering half the planet, from the Netherlands to China and from northern Siberia to Egypt, counting Da Vinci, Dürer, Rembrandt, Matisse, to name a few, and Dmitri Prigov.
Amongst the works by Prigov are 18 drawings and one installation. The concept of the installation and the build-up is a joint collaboration effort by Andrey Prigov and Hermitage Amsterdam Curator, Vincent Boele.
With holdings of over three million objects, the State Hermitage is one of the few truly encyclopaedic museums in the world and the Prigov Foundation is exited to partake actively in the celebrations.
The Exhibition is open to the public from 2 February to 25 August 2019.
