Odessa to join the European Night of Museums

On May 18, «Collage Museum, Collage in Museum» project will be presented in Odessa Private Collections Museum.

On May 18, 2013, “Collage Museum, Collage in Museum” project will be introduced in Odessa A.V Bleshchunov Private Collections Museum (19, Polish Street) in the network of European Commission’s “New Breath of Culture: Art Vitalizes Heritage” Grant Culture Program.

The concept of the Project is destined to interpret the Museum as a holistic art object – a collage of subjects having been gathered by one person all around the world and united in the museum space.

Young authors from three countries (7 artists from Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia each), after having studied the museum’s collection, will create different collages on its base – traditional, volume, carpet-like, postcard-like ones, etc. They will work in the museum itself, as well as taking “art expeditions” around the city, to gather fragments for their author’s objects. Numerous subjects, newspapers, magazines, announcements, photos – all these might become a part of collages and illustrate the showpiece the author’s chosen.

The authors will be working for 7 days before the Night of Museums.

During the event, the guests of the museum will have an opportunity to attend collage techniques master classes and create author’s work themselves.
Traditionally, admittance to the museum on this night is FREE of charge.


The Long Night of Museums (or the Night of Museums) is a cultural event where a group of museums and cultural institutions in an area cooperate to remain open late into the night to introduce themselves to new potential patrons. Visitors are given a common entrance pass which grants them access to all exhibits as well as complimentary public transportation within the area.
The first Long Night of Museums (German: Lange Nacht der Museen) took place in Berlin in 1997. The concept has been very well received, and since then the number of participating institutions and exhibitions has risen dramatically, spreading to over 120 other cities throughout Europe, as well as elsewhere, in Argentina and the Philippines.

For the second year, ICOM (International Council of Museums) will patronize the European Night of Museums, an event which announces International Museum Day in the spirit of an all-day and all-night museum week. The European Night of Museums will be celebrated on 19 May, 2012.

The European Night of Museums was created in 2005 by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. During a late-night opening, visitors can discover, for free, museums’ collections and all the special events organised for the festival. The Night of Museums aims to make museums more accessible to the general public and in particular to a new younger public and to federate a network of European museums around a common festive and friendly event.

In 2011, more than 4,000 European museums in 40 different countries participated in the Night of Museums.

The Council of Europe and UNESCO are patronizing the Night of Museums and the French Federation of Friends of Museums and the French Réunion des Musées nationaux (RMN) are institutional partners of the event.
