Ervand Kochar

Artist and sculptor Ervand Kochar’s (1899–1979) Museum is an important research and propaganda center of historic Avant-garde in the region. In Paris (1923–1936) he created works which placed his name among the greatest – those who determined the progress of the European and the world Avant-Garde. Kochar is the founder of Painting in Space or “Peinture dans L’espace” – a new plastic expression including time as the fourth dimension. European art critics considered Kochar one of those “pioneers who had transformed our perceptions about art in a few years and overturned the world….”
And it is only in Kochar Museum and at the Pompidou Center in Paris that the miracle of Kochar’s art which is called “Painting in Space” is exhibited. Unique documents and valuable facts of his connections with the leaders of Avant-garde are also displayed.
The Armenian artist’s work was displayed along with those of Picasso, Braque, Arp, Brancusi, Leger, Kiriko and others. In 1936 Kochar repatriated to his Motherland in the USSR. Prison, banishment and isolation followed, which undoubtedly left an imprint on his creative life, but there was a counter-reaction in this case. The so-called Khrushchovian melt-down of the 50–60’s also had an effect. This period is one of Kochar’s soaring genius, reborn and abandoned hopes.

Parajanov

The museum of the famous film director and artist S. Parajanov was founded 1988 and opened in 1991 after one year of his death. It is one of the most visited museums in Yerevan. Parajanov’s artis-tic heritage — collages, assemblages drawings, film sketches, dolls, hats, private things and gifts by his friends, totally 1600 items, are kept in the museum.
Parajanov’s works are his distinctive reaction to life and events around him, his aesthetic per-ception of the world, the part of which was made in prison: the Soviet system suspended Parajanov from shooting films for almost 15 years, 5 of which (1973–1977 and 1982) were spent in prisons and “camps of severe regime.”

The Artist’s work has no direct analogies in the world art and amazes with its fantasy, wit and mastery. The use of various materials and objects imparts a special charm and brilliance to it. His aes-thetic system also includes plastic art, based on traditions of Armenian, Eastern and Oriental art. In the course of 26 years of its existence the museum has organised 64 exhibitions in 30 coun-tries.
