Our partner - The Kreeger Museum

In the fall of 2009, The Kreeger Museum presented an exhibition of works by South African artist, William Kentridge and Russian artist, Oleg Kudryashov. As two of the most significant printmakers in the world today, both artists use bold technical elements to express forceful imagery that comments directly and indirectly on important contemporary issues while exploring human values under totalitarian regimes. Though the printmakers have never met, this exhibition joined them together in a demonstration of the nature of thought and feelings in similarly repressive societies. Kentridge and Kudryashov: Against the Grain will be on view October 3 - December 30, 2009. The exhibition is curated by Eric Denker and Chris With, both of the National Gallery of Art and consists of 40 to 50 works drawn from Washington area collectors.

"I am writing to express my appreciation to Global Arts Network for Sponsoring "An Evening of Russian Music", on November 7, 2009, in collaboration with The Kreeger Museum. We were delighted to welcome the renowned musicians to play pieces by Alfred Shnitke, Sergey Rachmaninoff and Dmitri Shostakovich. The sold out concert was praised by all who attended and we are grateful for sumptuous reception following the performance, generously provided by Global Arts Network. The Kreeger Museum is honored to work with organization such as Global Arts Network that further intercultural understanding and promote cross-cultural art education. The performance was an invaluable addition to our season of programs and enriched our special exhibition, William Kentridge and Oleg Kudryashov: Against the Grain, while furthering our museum of art, architecture and music. It was pleasure to work with you on this event and we look forward to collaborating with you in the future."
