Udarnik, a Constructivist Treasure
Udarnik is a former Soviet cinema, built as part of the project of the residential complex known as the House on the Embankment, planned by the famous Soviet architect Boris Iofan. It's one of the oldest Moscow cinemas, the actual first movie-theatre featuring a sound system. For a long time it was the city's major cinema, projecting all the latest Soviet movies.
Completed in 1931, it is located in the Central Administrative Okrug of Moscow, the historical and cultural heart of the capital. The Udarnik is a timeless monument of Russian Constructivism which remains an important and iconic building for Muscovites.
Today, the former cinema is to be transformed into a Contemporary Art Museum upon the initiative of Shalva Breus, founder of the Shalva Breus Foundation and Kandinzky prize.
A museum dedicated to Russian Contemporary Art
The overall statement of the Udarnik project is to offer to Russian Contemporary Art the attention and recognition it deserves.
Its main mission is to help the public to understand and enjoy the Russian Art of our time.
Udarnik museum aims to engage artists and audiences through an ambitious programme of exhibitions, collection, education, publication and art prize.
One of its goals is to maintain the growing appetite for contemporary art and support the development of quality Russian contemporary art. It will fuel creativity, ignite minds and provide inspiration. This includes the creation of a Contemporary Art Museum with a strong collection, the development of outreach cultural programmes and the expansion of the existing publishing programme.
The Museum of Contemporary Art is to become one of the most important centres of cultural attraction in Russia and a major player in the Russian Contemporary Art field.
