"Art Made in Silence“ Exhibition


On August 26, 2016 at 17:30, the Art Made in Silence exhibition will open at the Yasnaya Polyana Cultural Center (Yasnaya Polyana Village, 142A). The authors of the more than twenty works on display are deaf artists from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Italy, and France.

After the opening ceremony, the exhibition will be open for visitors on August 27 from 9:00 to 19:00, and on August 28 from 9:00 to 17:00. Admission is free.


The Art Made in Silence exhibition is a result of the project we launched at the beginning of 2016 for the popularization of contemporary fine art of deaf artists. The Yasnaya Polyana Museum anounced a contest and invited Professional and amateur deaf artists from Russia and abroad to participate in it. The best works were selected for the exhibition, whose motto is What Men Live By – the title of Leo Tolstoy‘s well-known work.

“Each of these works not only reveals the inner world of its creator as best it can, but also allows us, together with him, to feel, to see and even hear all the world around him,” says Ekaterina Tolstaya , director of the Yasnaya Polyana museum. “We would like to devote this exhibition to the wonderful artist Dmitry Shiryaev who helped start the project, but, unfortunately, did not live to see its results.”


The best artists will also receive awards in two categories: painting and graphics. The awards ceremony will take place on August 28 at 15:00. There will be also be a concert of actors from the Theater of Facial Expressions and Gestures.

The exhibition is supported by the the All-Russian Society of the Deaf and its Tula branch, the Association of Deaf Artists of Russia, and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Tula Region.
