    Discussing what brought her to India, Yavorskaya says she wanted to bring art out of galleries.

    "Art in its present form is restricted to galleries in India. Masses don't really go there. This exhibition helps bring art out of the galleries. The new and different format creates interest about art in youngsters and educates them about classical art as well."

    "Four years ago, when we decided to make this multimedia content, we tried to compose new technologies while combining it with classic art. We are trying to re-imagine the 19th and 20th century through this exposition.

    "For me, the very first idea in the present scenario is that of the revolution of art and impressionists have played an important role in representing that," says Yavorskaya.

     A joint initiative of Bengaluru-based art platform Esperienza and Russian art cluster ArtPlay, the exhibition has also been showcasing works by marquee Indian artists such as Anupam Sud, Paramjeet Singh, Arpana Caur, Biman B Das, Kanchan Chander, Kalicharan Gupta,  Ananda Moy Banerjee and Ram V Sutar.

    "It is my first time here in India and I have been motivated to research about Indian art and do an exhibition back in Moscow. It will be an interesting experience for me as a curator. Indian art comes with a lot of cultural ideas which are different to European people," says Yavorskaya.

    'The Drifting Canvas' will continue till June 15.
