ILS students from section 10A and their Russian Language and Literature teacher Marina Zakharchenko paid a visit to the Primorye State Picture Gallery to see an exhibition of works by Andrei Kamalov assembled from the gallery’s own collection, the collection of Artetazh Contemporary Art Gallery, and the collections of the artist’s heirs.
“Our students saw unusual works, depicting the interaction between ordinary objects and the space around them,” explains Marina Zakharchenko.
The students also heard a lecture on the work of Andrei Kamalov given by his widow, Olga Dilaktorskaya, who is a Doctor of Philological Sciences and a member of the International Dostoevsky Society.
“Seeing and learning about the master’s life and works directly from one of those closest to him was a wonderful opportunity for our students,” notes ILS Principal Olga Shevchenko. “The experience should help them better understand the artist’s work and ideas.”
