The international exhibition project “All Colors of Asia” presents exotic and captivating beauty of ten Southeast Asian countries in artworks of Russian artists and museum exhibits. The exhibition is dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the dialogue between ASEAN and Russia.

This large exhibition project will occupy two floors of the exhibition complex of the State Darwin Museum and conclude multiyear trips of the Bureau of Creative Expeditions around exotic countries of Southeast Asia. The works of art created in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, the Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam will be presented at one cultural platform for the first time. Beautiful works of applied arts from the funds of the State Museum of Oriental Art; items from the funds of the State Darwin Museum and original objects from expeditions will reveal the greatness of colorful diversity of ASEAN countries.

The “All Colors of Asia” exhibition at the State Darwin Museum will conclude a three-year creative expedition of Russian artists to ten Southeast Asian countries. The project was initiated by the ASEAN Centre in MGIMO-University, the MFA of Russia. The implementation of this ambitious and beautiful idea was entrusted to the public organisation the Bureau of Creative Expeditions. This project was supported by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of ASEAN countries, diplomatic missions accredited in the Russian Federation, representatives of the Ministries of Cultures of ASEAN countries who provided invaluable support and created all necessary conditions for productive work of Russian artists during their expeditions. The result of these creative trips was a wonderful catalogue prepared for the exhibition “All Colors of Asia” with an opening address of the President of the Russian Federation V.V. Putin. The catalogue was presented at the Russia – ASEAN summit in Sochi in May 2016. The halls of the State Darwin Museum will present a great collection of artworks, many of which weren’t included in the catalogue, as well as iconic items from the collections of the State Darwin Museum, the State Museum of Oriental Art and some private collections.

The Culture Weeks will be an important part of the international exhibition project. The State Darwin Museum will host many interesting cultural events such as lectures, film screenings, concerts and many others. These events will open the great world of geographical, national and cultural peculiarities of the Southeast Asian region and demonstrate strong historical bonds of friendship between our countries.
