Project concept:

"The Russian soul through Russian art”


The Mystery of Russian soul
This cultural phenomenon continues to fascinate and puzzle, attract or, on the contrary, disturb many and many...Both outside Russia and on its vast expanses.
There are as many answers to this mystery as there are those who try to solve it. And those who avoid rational solutions in favor of emotional and sensual perception are much closer to the truth.
Directed mostly to the heart and not to the mind, art provides unique opportunities to feel and understand the soul of another culture. And to find your right answer. And to see the deep spiritual closeness behind the outer otherness...


The ancient town of Miramas is one of the bright cultural centers of the French Riviera. The city is famous not only for its cozy streets, ancient buildings made of Golden stone and amazing views of the nearby lake Étang de Berre. Intensive work of numerous art galleries of Miramas is famous in the capital of the region of Marseille, and also outside Provence, above all is the GALERIE DES MOLIERES (the Moliere Gallery).
In 2019 the GALERIE DES MOLIERES (the Moliere Gallery) is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Over the years staff of the gallery presented its countrymen and guests a lot of interesting art events. The motto of the gallery states "Art is a treasure designed to serve peace and friendship between people". Particular attention is paid here to the development of the friendship with Russia. The Moliere gallery hosted collective and personal exhibitions of Russian artists, recitals of Russian theaters and Russian art projects. Fruitful cooperation consolidates the GALERIE DES MOLIERES with the Consulate General of Russia in Marseille and the Russian-French Association “Perspective”.
Inviting the project Art Week in Franceof the Eurasian art Union,gallery owners are sure that the exhibition will cause wide interest and will have a great success.
