DESCRIPTION

The Museum of Russian Art is located 15 minutes from TriBeca, take a path train, a ferry or a car ride. [FOR DIRECTIONS PRESS]

The (MoRA) Museum focuses upon Russian art and culture, especially art and culture of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, from the colossal achievements of the great Russian Avant-Garde (Kandinsky, Malevich and others) through the fascinating era of Nonconformist (or Unofficial) Art of the period between the late 1950s and the 1980s and up to the most recent developments in contemporary living artistic and cultural life. Russian art is broadly construed, including all art that can be associated with Russian culture - art belonging to the cultural life of Russia; art produced by Russians, Russian-speakers, and artists of Russian extraction, background or heritage; art that is itself concerned with Russian language, history and culture - all this is within MoRA's purview.

MoRA seeks to promote and stimulate innovation and excellence in Russian art. Its resources will be used to advance the aspirations of artists and scholars in the field, possibly to include prizes, awards, subsidies and scholarships for eminent and promising artists and scholars.

MoRA aims to become a vibrant and dynamic cultural center for the communities to which it belongs. In addition to programs related to fine art, the Museum will be home to an ongoing film program, literary and poetic events, and concerts and performances.
