MOSCOW.- Yesterday, the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center in Moscow held a series of private opening celebrations for My Red Homeland, the first solo exhibition of the work of Anish Kapoor ever to be presented in Russia. The exhibition, supported by Lisson Gallery, London, opens to the public today within the Special Program of the 6th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art and will remain on view until January 17, 2016.

Anish Kapoor, Alexander Boroda, Director of the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center and President of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia (FJCR), Victor Vekselberg, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, and Maria Nasimova, Chief Curator, were joined by guests Berel Lazar, Chief Rabbi of Russia, Anton Belov, Fyodor Bondarchuk, Richard Chang, Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Marina Dobrovinskaya, Aliona Doletskaya, Kate Fowle, Mark Garber, Vika Gazinskaya, Irina Khakamada, Tina Kim, Alexander Klyachin, Andrey Makarevich, Teresa Mavica, Gor Nahapetyan, Vladimir Pozner, Margarita Pushkina, Ksenia Rappoport, Michal Rovner, Marianne Sardarova, Sofiko Shevarnadze, Olga Slutsker, Olga Sviblova, Vasily Tsereteli, Charles & Olga Thompson, Zelfira Tregulova, Valentina Volchkova, Regina von Flemming, among others for the exhibition's private preview at the museum of My Red Homeland, which included 4 works from distinct areas of Kapoor's sculptural language.

The opening was followed by a private dinner at Metropol Hotel to celebrate Anish Kapoor's debut exhibition in Russia. Guests arrived to a welcome reception by a live string quartet and Beluga cocktails. Following the first course, guests enjoyed a live performance by Andrei Makarevich and the "Yiddish jazz" band.

Anish Kapoor is one of the most influential artists in the world and has changed the perception of contemporary sculpture. Born in Bombay, India, Kapoor has lived and worked in London since the 1970s. In 1990, he represented Great Britain at the Venice Biennale where he was awarded the Premio Duemila and in 1991 he won the prestigious Turner Prize. In 2009, Anish Kapoor was the first contemporary artist to have an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London.
