Museum Design in St. Petersburg

CLIENT: PRO ARTE FOUNDATION FOR CULTURE AND ARTS
PROJECT: TEMPORARY EXHIBITION
LOCATION: ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA

Kvorning Design & Communication was, as the only Danish design agency, invited by PRO ARTE Foundation for Culture and Arts to participate a biennale. We designed and curated an exhibition about the development of St. Petersburg. The project was visualized by historic postcards depicting selected monuments of the city.

The scenography of the exhibit was made up by a series of significant elements – first and foremost a series of original postcards which highlighted the constant presence of the monuments in a city characterized by growth, changes and vibrancy. The exhibit was produced in collaboration with ARTE and Museum of Urban Sculpture.

During the biennale, Arne Kvorning gave a lecture on exhibition design at The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. Kvorning is looking forward to working on design exhibits for upcoming biennales.
