The guests of the Ice Hockey World Championship will experience performances, exhibitions, concerts and installations specially prepared for the championship
It is possible to guarantee that the guests of the Ice Hockey World Championship, irrespective of the results of the competition, will leave the country in a positive mood. After all, except for the sporting battles, they will experience performances, exhibitions, concerts and installations specially prepared for the championship. We will look at some of the most interesting.
Vanguard art during hundred years
An exhibition of modern fine arts, Avant-gARTe. From Square to Object, has been held in the Belarusian capital since April 21st. The National Exhibition Centre BelExpo (14 Pobediteley Avenue) displays works of the Belarusian artists-avant-gardists from all regions of the country over the last ten years. The Museum of Modern Fine Arts (47 Nezavisimosti Avenue) introduces the project Hundred Years of Belarusian Avant-garte. Part of the project will be transferred to the street located in the Yakub Kolas Square, near the museum. Reproductions of pictures of sixteen modern Belarusian painters and graphic artists will be exhibited here. These works can be seen round the clock.
Belarusian treasures in holograms
An exhibition of artistic holograms Holography-2014. Minsk in the National History Museum of Belarus (12 Karl Marx Street) will run until June 6th. Not everyone who comes to the championship will get to the places where the Cross of Yevfrosiniya Polotskaya or the Zhirovichi icon of Mother of God are stored, but thanks to holograms, capable of recreating the amazing effect of presence, the visitors will seem as if they see these relics with their own eyes. The pinnacle of the exhibition will be a hologram of a great Christian relic, the Gift of the Magi, which was brought to the country at the beginning of this year.
Open-air Jazz Evenings
Jazzmen from Belarus, Latvia, Poland, Germany, Italy, Sweden and the UK will perform on the concert platform near the Minsk Sports Palace. The tradition of holding Jazz Evenings in the country was created by the International Fund Idea in the summer of last year. Concerts were held near the Town Hall, in Svobody Square where they attracted many listeners. However, during the days of the Ice Hockey World Championship, there will be more visitors, so the concerts have been transferred to a wider platform. Such jazz bands, as the Deniss Pashkevich Trio from Latvia, the Monika Borzym Group from Poland, TESLA from Sweden, Apple Tea from Belarus and others will perform before spectators. All concerts will begin at 8 pm.
