Russian Tea Room Gallery in Paris

Museums and Galleries

Since 2007, the Russian Tea Room Gallery has chosen the presentation of modern photography to the general public as a priority direction of its activity. Located on the legendary Montmartre hill for artists, it primarily promotes the work of Russian photographers.

During the year in the exhibition halls there are no less than 10 wonderful opening days for the selection of authors. The exhibitions held by the gallery with the participation of S. Maksimishin, E. Mokhorov, I. Mukhin, M. Ovcharenko have become notable events in the cultural life of Paris.

Gallery staff do not miss the opportunity to present Russian photography at major art fairs. Photo collections were shown at international shows ART Rotterdam, Nofound, SLICK Dessin.

Russian Tea Room Gallery is not limited to exhibiting only Russian photographers. Its specialists also collaborate with photographers from Eastern Europe, Latin America and Australia. Visitors to the gallery had the opportunity to get acquainted with the skills of the Czech artists I. Hanke, P. Bank, the Australian K. Fortesia, the Japanese S. Ono, the Mexican F. Brito.

Exhibitions held in the gallery are distinguished by a great genre and thematic variety. Everyday moments are captured in the works of the Lithuanian A. Sutkus. A distinctive feature in the work of this artist is soft humor and attention to detail.

A fresh look at the world of fashion and show business was reflected in the photographs of L. Fetisova. The focus of S. Maksimishin's attention is the historical drama and the tragedy of life in a totalitarian society.

Along with personal vernissages, the Russian Tea Room gallery organizes collective exhibition shows that bring together several participants. The exhibition "Summertime" presented the works of seven photographers who have been fruitfully working since the middle of the 20th century. The unifying motive of their work is a positive mood, contemplation and tenderness, joy with a touch of melancholy and sadness.

The exhibition of photographic portraits "Look in my eyes" provided an opportunity for gallery visitors to follow the evolution of photographic perspective. The endless play of reflections allows you to reveal the smallest individual features of the posing models. The images of children and adolescents created by photographers have become especially memorable and captivating with their spontaneity.
