The exhibition is held within the framework of the preparation for the APEC Summit 2012 in Vladivostok presided by Russia. The APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) Forum focuses on the issues of economic development. However, the issues of culture as one of the main factors of economic and social development are beginning to acquire more and more importance. One of the targets of the present project is to show the dramatic influence that culture exerted on the development of information technology in the 20th century, which dramatically changed not only cultural discourses but also the society and economy.


There are plans to show this exhibition in many places. However, before the APEC Summit in Vladivostok in 2012, it will only by displayed in the countries of the Asia-Pacific region: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, (Russia), Singapore, Chinese, Taipei, Thailand, United States, Vietnam.




From ancient time folk masters of the Russian land created artistic objects of outstanding beauty for everyday life. Folk crafts have survived in many regions of Russia, they are based on handicraft and come from grandfathers’ and great-grandfathers of modern Russians. Their origin is different. Some are rooted in the household activities of peasants associated with subsistent economy and the manufacture of objects of both for everyday, and for festive use. Others are derived from village or urban crafts. Anyway, every craftsmen community proved to be capable of creating its own aesthetical system, unique imagery, its own artistry methods which have acquired the status of tradition. Every modern master has the experience of many generations behind him or her, and these generations are his or her co-authors in the manufacture of a certain object.


Splendid products of “gold” Khokhloma, Zhostovo painted lacquer trays, Gzhel porcelain, Palekh lacquer miniature, colorful Pavlosvky Posad shawls, joyful and exquisite lace of the North, Dymkovo clay toys are liked and widely known not only in Russia, but also globally, where they are valued very high.


The North of the Nizhnii Novgorod Gubernia has a long and famous history of woodcraft. That is where one of the most remarkable Russian local crafts, the manufacture of wooden lathed dishware with decorative ornaments called “Khokhlomskaya”, appeared in the middle of the 17th century near Khokhloma, a large commerce center.


The original method of “gold” painting that evolved in the course of centuries has survived till our days. The classic combination of “gold” with vermilion and black, forming the core of the Khokhloma color scheme, is tactfully amplified with brown, yellow and green. Craftsmen use the methods of brush painting without any stencils or pre-drawing. The Khokhloma dishware has no genre scenes. Ornaments painted by Khokhloma artists feature bushes, twisted twigs, strawberries, raspberries, ashberries. Flowering bushes and fruits were associated with wishes of the best of wealth and wellbeing, that is why they are abundant in Khokhloma decoration.


The Zhostovo village is well known as an old center where iron painted lacquer trays are manufactured. This craft emerged in the early 19th century, and it was mainly influenced by flower ornaments on metal from the Urals. The Zhostovo painting is performed against the black, red, green or blue background. Its basic motif is a bunch of flowers with alternating large orchard and small wild flowers. The shape of a flower successfully combines with the decorative effect of the color solution related to the Russian folk brush painting on chests, spinning wheels, toys (cylinder birch bark containers with tight lids).


The Zhostovo trays are exclusively hand-painted. The rims of trays are covered with a light “gold” ornament. When completed, the ornament is covered with three layers of light lacquer and polished till it shines like a mirror.


Gzhel as the name of the craft is associated with a district in the Moscow Region where almost all the population of its villages was manufacturing pottery, clay shingle and glazed tile. Since mid 18th century Gzhel masters learned the majolica method which allowed them to manufacture pottery featuring multicolor painting over white enamel. Jugs and kvassniks (kvass containers), large dishes and cups were decorated with images of flowers, birds, trees. Ornamented pottery was amplified with porcelain figures. Every element of these figurines was wittily developed into a decorative form. Since early 19th century porcelain and faience ware dominated Gzhel crafts. Blue and multicolor brush painting combined with gold was used to decorate tea sets, vases for flowers.

Even today the Gzhel porcelain has retained the nature of folk art with its naïve imagery and motifs taken from life as artists see it. Tea sets, various souvenirs – samovar boxes, dresser boxes, kvass containers, miniature sculpture produced here are still unique and original.


Palekh is a settlement in the Ivanovo region, it is an old center of the Russian icon painting where expensive icons were painted in the “old style”, where ancient church frescos were renovated and restored. Icon painting was already in decline before the revolution. Residents of Palekh were ardently looking for ways to use their skills in the new conditions of life. A happy guess prompted them to try the manufacture of lacquer miniature, and this guess was the beginning of mindboggling success. Palekh residents mastered the methods of manufacturing papier-mâché lacquer boxes, retaining the traditional methods of tempera painting and original imagery. The transition to a black lacquer background absent in icon painting was also new. Difficult experiments in the craft helped to reveal bright colors of old Russian painting in a new way.

Headscarves and shawls manufactured in Pavlovsky Posad, an old Russian city, have been widely known globally as unique products of folk art. Thin wool headscarves with printed colorful ornaments have always been widely popular. The compositional and color beauty of Pavlovsky shawls comes from the virtuoso skills of printing board manufacturers who produced printing boards used to print decorations on the shawls, and from high professionalism of calico printers. The Pavlovsky shawls always have distinct impeccable harmony in the selection of the individual elements of flower ornaments and of color combinations.


The masters and artists of the Pavlovsky Posad headscarf manufactory still give their fans the opportunity to enjoy exquisite ornaments and images, which, although being perfected and modernized with the passage of time, have retained the styles and traditions of old masters.


The Vologda lace is a unique phenomenon in the folk art of the Russian North. The wealth and variety of ornaments, clear lines, measured ornamental rhythms, high skills make it artistically unique. Plant ornament is characteristic for the Vologda lace. The motif of a lush bush with wide pedate leaves and polypetalous rosette flowers form a wide rim of the lace product. Flower rosettes and branches spread over the background of the lace. Vologda lace makers usually produce various tablecloths, napkins and lace runners, collars and cuffs, headscarves. Lace production is complicated and labor consuming, it requires special patience and skills. It has witnessed almost no changes during the long history of this craft.


Folk art and crafts form a brilliant, poetic page in the history of the Russian traditional folk culture. Rich fantasies, high professionalism, profound awareness of the material are the traits that turn the products of folk masters into a true national cultural asset.
