The exhibition "A Midsummer Night's Dream" in Tsarskoe Selo


In the Zubovsky wing of the Catherine Palace the exhibition "A Midsummer Night's Dream" was opened. The exposition unites in one space what usually exists in different dimensions: authentic items from museum funds and works of contemporary clothing designers.

45 garments, rare objects of arts and crafts (bronze, mirrors, paintings, furniture, sculpture, chandeliers), images of putti and cupids were presented to the audience. Exhibition installations inspired by palace interiors, and a stylized park zone create a reliable historical environment for the imagination of artists.

The exhibition was the result of a ten-year cooperation between the museum and St. Petersburg fashion designers, who took part in the Tsarskoe Selo theatrical defile throughout the years.

The exhibition will last until October, 30.
