2018 has been designated as the The Year of Japan in Russia. As we approach it, three exhibitions of renowned Japanese artists are taking place in Moscow. Don’t miss the last month of Keiichi Tanaami’s pop art exhibition with free admission; check the much-talked about Takashi Murakami exposition at Garage; and prepare to meet Hayao Miyazaki’s characters in December.
The night of November 4 – 5 is Art Night in Moscow. Museums, theaters, and even a cathedral are offering something special after sunset for all those who enjoy the culture and the arts.
This exhibition, located at the HSE building on Staraya Basmannaya Ulitsa, near the Mandelstam Centre, tells the story of all the important stages in the poet’s life and work. It features photos, announcements of poetry nights, and documents testifying to Mandelstam’s arrest and death, as well as comments by the poet’s contemporaries.
This October the world looks back on 100 years since the 1917 Revolution in Russia. Most Moscow cultural spaces have prepared events and exhibitions that urge the viewers to learn more about the revolution and to contemplate its role in Russian and global history.
Learn Finnish, find a way to the Moominvalley, learn about Santa's plans, listen to some music, and watch some movies – these are only some of the activities you can take part in at the 100th anniversary of Finland's independence celebrated in Moscow on October 14.

The HSE MIEM 3D Visualization and Computer Graphics Laboratory worked alongside the Sergei Chelnokov Foundation to create a slide film based on the stereoscopic photographs of Russian photographers working at the turn of the 20th century. A viewing of the film will take place on October 18th as part of the exhibition From the Belle Époque to Revolution – the History of Russia through sterophotography 1880–1917 in 3D.
