«Parajanov: An Exhibition of The Colour of Pomegranates»

The Solyanka State Gallery was completely packed on February 12th for the opening of the «The Colour of Pomegranates» exhibition, which honoured artist and director, Sergei Parajanov, who would have been 90 years old this year.

The gallery’s exhibition area was set up to give guests an overview of the Great Sergo’s creativity. Visitors, including Alyona Doletskaya, Vasili Tsereteli, Veniamin Smekhov, Yuriy Norshteyn and Andrei Khrzhanovsky, Gor Nakhapetyan, Mark Garber, Artemiy Troitsky, Arina Sharapova, Agniya Kuznetsova, Vera Glagoleva, Pavel Derevyanko, Lyudmila Petrushevskaya, Lora Guerra, and many others, came to feast their eyes on unique treasures from the collections of the Sergei Parajanov Museum (Yerevan), the State Central Film Museum (Moscow), and also items from the personal archives of Parajanov’s friends, which mostly included artefacts that have never been shown in Moscow.

As part of the opening ceremony, there was also another premiere — the ARARAT Art Collection special series, which was created for the 90th anniversary celebration. Guests at the ARARAT Bar enjoyed the rich and full-bodied taste of «Akhtamar» Limited Edition, which reflects the director’s vivid life and the deep impression that he left on the history of cinematography. The menu also featured signature cocktails made with the legendary brandy. The cocktails’ flavourful notes of pomegranate (the exhibition’s symbol), fig, and ginger accented the deep, bright flavour of ARARAT Brandy. The exclusive ARARAT Pomegranate Tini cocktail was created specially for the opening ceremony celebration, which was designed with a pomegranate-red colour theme.
