MIRO – A RETROSPECTIVE SHOW OF MIRIAN SHVELIDZE’S WORKS

22 December 2023 18:00 - 28 January 2024 18:00

From December 22 to January 28, 2024, the Dimitri Shevardnadze National Gallery will feature a solo exhibition of Mirian Shvelidze’s works. This is the first time the gallery has displayed the works of Mirian Shvelidze, a key figure in the development of new Georgian scenography.

The conceptual retrospective, titled Miro, presents three main directions of the artist’s creativity: easel painting, wall painting, and scenography. Mirian Shvelidze, a postmodernist artist, played a pivotal role in the creation of The Artist’s Theatre in the 1960s, alongside other Georgian scenographers. This innovative theatre emphasized the visual aspect of performances, giving it equal importance to the dramatic action on stage.

Shvelidze’s artistic contributions are closely tied to the theatre of Robert Sturua. Throughout his life, he served as the main artist of Rustaveli National Theatre, providing scenography for landmark productions such as Richard the Third, King Lear, Hamlet, and Is He a Man a Human?!,  The Misfortune of Darispan and more.

Beyond Rustaveli Theatre, Shvelidze collaborated with directors from Marjanishvili, Gori, Griboedov Russian Drama, and Liberty Theatres, contributing to numerous productions.

Mirian Shvelidze’s exhibition is a project organized by the National Gallery. This is the first time that Tbilisi’s exhibition space is hosting his works. Previous exhibitions were held at the Rustaveli National Theatre and the Tsinandali Museum.

The exhibition will open on Friday, December 22, at 18:00 and run until January 28, 2024.

Curator of the exhibition: Maia Chikvaidze.
