CHESSDOM: Co-operation Agreement Between The Russian Chess Federation And ART RUSSE
10 Mar 15
The Russian Chess Federation and ArtRusse, which aims to develop a greater understanding of Soviet and Russian art, have signed a partnership agreement.
ArtRusse’s goal is to bring forgotten and little-known artworks from the period 1917-1991 to the attention of international audience. The Russian Chess Federation’s activities are aimed at popularising chess, as well as developing chess in Russia. The cooperation between ArtRusse and the RCF will allow to pool efforts to fulfill these tasks.
The partnership between the RCF and ArtRusse is a step in the ongoing programme “Chess in Museums”, which was created by the RCF in 2012 and is made possible with support from the Elena & Gennady Timchenko Foundation.
Over the past two years, brilliant tournaments have been held in major world cultural centres, such as the Tretyakov Gallery, the Louvre, the Russian Museum, and the Republic of Tatarstan Museum of Decorative Arts. Cooperation with ArtRusse continues the program to create new ways for popularising chess by uniting cultural and intellectual aspects.
