On December 18 and 19, Tomsk State University will host a scientific and cultural forum "Russian Seasons". It is organized by the Centre for Research Trans-Siberian Scientific Way , created at TSU in May of this year.
The December "Russian Seasons" will be devoted to the Russian national costume. How did the Russian peasant perceive her dress when she sewed it herself, how was it seen at the turn of the centuries by the Russian Empress or the designer Nadezhda Lamanova? Was there a special dress for the Russian sculptor Vera Mukhina? How did local artists see Russian costume? What unbanal work with the traditional Russian clothing is possible today? Why should we reconstruct authentic clothes? Visitors will be able to find the answers, together with experts, for these and many other questions.
"Russian Seasons" will include creative laboratories, public lectures, expert sessions, displays of replicas of female hats of the 18th and 19th centuries and contemporary designer clothing, and interactive performances, where you can take pictures "inside" of famous paintings by Russian artists. Entrance to all events is free.
All events of the forum will be broadcast at the Internet. To participate in "Russian Seasons" through the online broadcast, the link is: http://webinar.tsu.ru/rus_season
