Philately as Art

Gordon Rayan and Morten Torgersen (Norway)
A.S.Popov Central Museum of Communication
9 October – 19 December, 2018

The six sections of the exhibition tell the visitor about what is the specificity of the work of the miniaturist artist in creating a stamp; whose portraits and what subjects appeared on stamps in Russia and the USSR in different years; how effectively the state used stamps as an instrument of agitation. For the first time, postage stamps and preparatory materials for their publication are presented as it had never been exhibited in the museum projects before.

2018 makes a special double anniversary for St Petersburg Museum of Theatre and Music: 100 + 10 years. The Museum was officially established in 1918, yet the core of its collection is made up of the materials of the «First Russian Theatre Exhibition» of 1908. 110 years later the Museum presents the most compelling acquisitions and donations received in the last decade (2008-2018).
