Icons for Our Time: Orthodox Art from Around the World
The Museum of Russian Icons will celebrate the 15th anniversary of its founding by presenting Icons for Our Time: Orthodox Art from Around the World, an ambitious exhibition of 15 commissioned icons by some of the most important contemporary icon painters.  New works by artists from Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Egypt, Georgia, Greece, Japan, Montenegro, Russia, Serbia, the UK and the US have been especially commissioned for this anniversary exhibition.
 
The exhibit will examine the spread of Orthodox Christian art through the medium of icons and explore three paradoxes: the icon as a living tradition, the icon as a signature feature of Orthodox Christianity, and the concept and relevance of the contemporary icon in modern culture.
