Vladimir Vladimirovich Mayakovsky was a Russian and Soviet poet, playwright, artist and stage and film actor. He is among the foremost representatives of early-20th century Russian Futurism. Museum of Mayakovsky is among the most interesting and spectacular museums in Moscow. Now it is temporary closed for construction works, so I put the cache outside the museum yard, closer to the monument to poet, on Myasnitskaya street. While museum is closed, you can see the monument, and the entrance to the museum, from the archway to the left from the monument.
The State Museum of Vladimir Mayakovsky was opened in 1974 in the building where the poet lived and worked from 1919 to 1930. The basis of its collection was formed from the stocks of the Library-Museum named after Mayakovsky that had been functioning since 1938
While Mayakovsky was a prominent representative of avant-guard art, the Museum dedicated to his live and creativity was designed not to the classic museum canons. The building was decorated in postmodern style. Prominent artists, architects and designers of the 20th century used a new method of the organization of the space making a visitor a co-author and participant of the museum action.
The Museum of Vladimir Mayakovsky regularly holds poetical and musical evenings, meeting with writers and actors. On the scene of the Theatre of Poets writers Voznesensky, Evtushenko, Akhmadulina, Iskrenko, singers Dolina, Bachurin, Kochetkov, actors Gaft, Kazakov, Yursky and others performed.
Now the museum is closed for construction works, after some time we will see the results.
