Dimitri Ozerkov - Director of Contemporary Art, Hermitage Museum
Friday, 6 October - 18.00 to 20.00
Pushkin House, 5a Bloomsbury Square, WC1A 2TA
Special Event for Members
Members met Dimitri Ozerkov, Head of the Hermitage Contemporary Art Department over a glass of wine at our offices in Pushkin House.
In 2007 Professor Piotrovsky asked Dimitri Ozerkov to work on a project that would extend the Hermitage's collection into the 20th and 21st centuries, now known as Project 20/21, housed in new galleries in the General Staff Building. The Hermitage Foundation UK has made this its focus for fundraising at our Annual Gala's and has supported many of the successful exhibitions.
Dimitri spoke informally and told us the history of this project, the reasons behind it and how it is so successful.
