The Moscow State Museum “Bourganov’s House” was founded
in January 2001. It is situated in the historical area of Moscow
(metro-station Kropotkinskaya). Its founder Alexander Bourganov
is a gifted contemporary artist, the Full Member of the Russian
Academy of Fine Arts, Doctor of the History of Art. The museum collection
presents the works of Alexander Bourganov, Maria Bourganova and
The main exposition is located out of doors in the
open air. The works of A. Bourganov and his private collection have
laid the foundation of the exposition. It begins directly in Big
Afanasievsky lane, where some sculptural works of the artist are
on display, occupies the museum’s territory and ends at green rest
area of Sivtsev Vrazhek. The hall of “Small Louvre” has become the
first indoor exhibition place of the museum. It is a relatevely
small underground space, which is covered with a glass roof. On
top of the roof one can see the sculptural composition named “Horses”.
Exhibinions, concerts and other cultural events usually take place
in the hall of “Small Louvre”.
The inner open yard of the museum is a remarkable exhibition space,
where visitors can have a walk among the represented there sculptures.
The so-called “Big Angel” Arcade forms one of the sides of the yard.
It is allowed to get up to the upper galleries of the Arcade, from
which the yard could be seen from high above. At the same time the
galleries are used as a theatrical stage for performances held in
The “Golden Doors” situated on the second gallery lead a visitor
to “Pegasus’ House” for continuation of sightseeing. This exposition
has recently been opened in the partly restored old building. Only
red brick walls are remained of the old construction. Having entered
the “Pegasus house” a visitor finds himself on the first floor of
the building and can have a look at the sculptures, displayed on
the ground floor, where a narrow dimly lighted staircase leads.
The last exhibition room of the museum - the so-called “Yard of
Pegasus”- is again a small open yard.
In fact, the museum space is unusually organized. It
includes the peculiar architecture of “ruins”, unexpected raise
in height and offers different foreshortenings from which the exhibited
objects could be viewed. All these creates the special realm of
art opened to everybody.
