July is the holiday and vacation time, so the majority of theaters, museums, and event spaces have a well-earned break to come back in autumn refreshed. That’s why the amount of events during the hottest day of summer is significantly less. However there are some curious things this week, and we would like to share them with you
On July 27 in Tomsk House of Art there is an opening of the exhibition “From monumentalism to pictorial art” dedicated to architecture and city space. More than 20 Siberian artists participated in the exposition and presented their works: you may find pictorial art works, landscape paintings, illustrations, and graphic collages. And at 19:00 there will be an open air lection in support of the exhibition about human feelings and architecture. The lecture and the exhibition are free.
The First Museum of Slavic Mythology continues showing immersive exhibition “Playing with eternity”. They say, there you may discover new sides of your personality and to know yourself! Very intriguing, isn’t it? The exhibition is open every day this week from 10:00 to 19:00, the cost is 200 rubles.
On July 29 at 19:00 Kafedra café launches the project called PechaKuchaNight. It is an informal conference where participants prepare their speech and presentation in format “20 slides, 20 seconds each” according to the theme given. The next conference’s theme is “Holidays in Russia are meant to be”. If you want to tell your story about your trips around Russia or to listen to other’s stories, please, register via https://taplink.cc/kafedra.tomsk. The cost for participants is 100 rubles.
July 31 is the last day of the exhibition “Mummies: in the footsteps of ancient cultures” in Tomsk Local Lore Museum. This is the Russia’s only project of historical reconstruction representing the most popular mummies’ authentic models from different museums all around the world. This is the opportunity to get to know ancient burial customs of different countries and to see the artifacts of world’s cultural heritage. The cost is 300 rubles.
If you miss some open air events, we have something for you: Tomsk Local Lore Museum invites you to the celebration of Saint Elija’s Day in the Museum Garden. The traditional Russian amusements are expected too: there will be games of strength, agility and stamina, workshops on making dolls and even Cossack porridge – how can you refuse? Moreover, the holiday and the treats there are free. We think it’s a unique opportunity to learn about Russian culture, especially for an international student. So don’t forget to pay them a visit in the Museum Garden on July 2 at 11:00.
