Since its inception in 2011, RUSSIAN ART + CULTURE has become the most popular and comprehensive international guide to the world of Russian art and culture. Our new podcast will feature even more creative conversations around tradition, fine art, education and more. Owned by art collector and professional Natasha Butterwick RUSSIAN ART + CULTURE features listings of the best selected events all over the world, exclusive interviews with the world-renowned professionals of the Russian cultural scene, reviews of the latest books, exhibitions and performances, research articles and opinion pieces, and the latest reports on the art market. Throughout the year we host seminars, lectures, film screenings, conferences and organise private art tours. In 2014 we published the UK-Russia Year of Culture magazine and, in 2015, commissioned the first-ever in-depth analysis of the Russian Auction Market – an invaluable and much-quoted source of reference for art professionals. RUSSIAN ART + CULTURE has regularly featured in The Times, Daily Telegraph, Financial Times, The Art Newspaper, Huffington Post, Blouin ArtInfo, The Moscow Times and RIA Novosti – and on the BBC. We are the founders of the RUSSIAN ART WEEK in London – an exclusive network uniting the leading auctions of Russian Art at Sotheby’s, Christie's, MacDougalls and Bonhams with the coinciding Russian-themed exhibitions and cultural events. We publish a comprehensive bi-annual OFFICIAL RUSSIAN ART WEEK GUIDE, coinciding with the June and November auctions of Russian Art at Sotheby’s, Christie’s, MacDougall’s and Bonhams. The Guide is available across London at locations from the Courtauld Institute, via the Saatchi Gallery to the Russian Embassy, to leading auction houses, business centres, restaurants and hotels, including The Dorchester, Claridge’s and The Ritz providing an insight into the most important events and topics.
