Central House of Artists - exhibitions in Moscow
The Central House of Artists (CHA) is one of thelargest and most famous exhibition centers in Russia. For more than 35 years of its existence, it has repeatedly become a venue for important cultural events. And today it is difficult to overestimate the role played by the CHA in the cultural life of the capital. Exhibitions held within its walls are interesting and diverse. And this means that everyone can find there a temporary or permanent exposition to their taste.
A few words about the history of the CHA
In 1956, it was decided to buildin the capital of two buildings, in one of which it was planned to place part of the Tretyakov Gallery exposition, and the second - to transfer to the Union of Artists of the USSR for exhibitions and other events. Over time, the idea arose to develop a single construction project, where both objects would be located. It was successfully implemented by the architects N. Sukoyan and Yu. Sheverdyaev, and in 1979 an exhibition of artists in the Central House of Artists and the exposition of the State Tretyakov Gallery on the Crimean shaft opened their doors to the first visitors.
In 2008, it became known about the project, according to whichon the site of the Central House of Art it was planned to build a multifunctional building in the form of cut fruit, in which, apart from part of the Tretyakov Gallery exposition, the hotel, high-level residential apartments and offices were to be located. A year later, Muscovites announced that the 15-story "Orange" will not be erected, instead of it a new complex will appear in the capital, the location of which will be the Crimean shaft. The Central House of Artists, an exhibition of Russian and Soviet artists of the 1920-1960 (part of the Tretyakov Gallery), according to the authorities' new plan, were to move to new buildings. It was assumed that the construction created by N. Sukoyan and J. Sheverdyaev should be placed at the disposal of the investor. Fortunately, this plan was also not implemented, as the public began to protect the building of the CHA. Whatever it was, today the exposition of the Central House of Artists is located in the same place as before, and there are a variety of interesting cultural events.
