The exposition presents objects related to the life of Viktor Tsoi: guitars, drafts, personal letters, photographs, stage costumes, paintings from different years and art images.

On January 15, the Central Exhibition Hall “Manezh” will open the biopic exhibition “Viktor Tsoi. The path of a hero. ” This is the first event of this magnitude dedicated to a musician. The project is timed to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the birth of Viktor Tsoi, which will be celebrated on June 21, 2022.

The unique exhibition became possible thanks to the musician’s family – father Robert Maksimovich and son Alexander, the closest circle of Viktor Tsoi, his friends, fans, as well as collectors.

The exhibition takes place in 11 halls on an area of ​​three thousand square meters. The authors of the project will recreate the entire path of a musician – from a shy boy to an idol of several generations. The exposition is organized not chronologically, but according to themes – music, cinema, poetry, visual arts. It displays objects related to the life of Viktor Tsoi: guitars, drafts, personal letters, photographs, stage costumes, paintings from different years and art images.

“While conceiving the exhibition, we wanted not only to immerse the audience in the atmosphere of music and images familiar to millions of people in our country, but also to give the opportunity to see another Tsoi – an artist, a hero of an unreported cyberpunk action movie, a representative of the Soviet underground unknown to the Western public. Scenography, audio and visual effects take this project beyond the usual exhibition, that’s why we call it a biopic exhibition and, inviting the audience, we say: “It will be like in Cinema!”, – said Alexander Tsoi, creative producer of the project.

An important part of the exposition is a look at Tsoi’s work through the eyes of people of a different culture. The texts for the exhibition and in the catalog were written by the French diplomat and writer Joel Bastener, a friend of Victor, who published his disc in France in 1989. Joanna Stingray (USA), popularizer of Soviet and post-Soviet rock culture in the West, also donated her archives. Rashid Nugmanov (France) will present a whole hall dedicated to the film, which was prepared for filming by Japanese producers. Due to the tragic death of Viktor Tsoi, the picture was not removed.
