New exhibition «Pyotr Belov. Queue for the truth»
In April 1988, the posthumous exhibition of Pyotr Belov took place in the House of Actor of the Union of Theater Professionals. It showed the cycle of 21 paintings that deeply impressed the audience with its bravery and depth and was immediately called the ‘anti-Stalin cycle.’ The works found such a strong echo in the hearts of people that they stood in long lines to get to the exhibition.

From 1988 until 1991, this exhibition was shown in Russia and abroad around 40 times. The artist’s family kept the paintings for a long time. Being in the collection of the GULAG History Museum, the works by Pyotr Belov get the chance of a rebirth. Thus, 30 years later, their exhibition gives the modern audience a possibility to reinterpret them.
