    “Foundation of Erarta in Saint Petersburg is a necessary and important event. Erarta is a whole separate world of senses and meanings behind the daily routine, a place of power and youth. We live in difficult times, but inside this space we can see the new perspectives. So there is a strong need to have such places as Erarta. The museum collection makes a good and fresh impression; especially I would like to point out the artist Dmitry Margolin. I saw only a small part of the collection that features over two thousand artworks, and I’m definitely coming back to see the rest of it”.

    “Erarta is an outstanding place. You come out of there with a great number of thoughts, and it is the mission of every museum, in a nutshell, to encourage the reflection. I was full of emotions in every exhibition hall of Erarta. I am trying to get the same effect in my art — the emergence of emotion inside spectator that will stay with him for a long time”.

    “I really like Erarta and it’s a shame that I haven’t come here before. I did not know that you have such a big building. Especially I was impressed by the artworks of Vyacheslav Mikhailov. The Russians are not prepared for contemporary art. Often spectators do not think about the spent force of artists and say something like ‘I can do that too!’ and it is a pity. I do not define contemporary and non-contemporary, there is only one criteria: it should have appeal and connection to the divine. The time of creation — 100 years ago or now — is not important at all”.

    “Erarta is one of the rare places in Russia where you can find European service level, European atmosphere and vibrations. I am very glad about our cooperation with Erarta, we got the second base for the Derevo theatre here. The first is in Germany, another one is in Erarta. Presently we are preparing performance Islands”.

    “In Erarta it feels home: it is comfortable, tidy, light and full of smiling people. It is the place where you can be in harmony with Art. I am very pleased to have held here the casting for my future project of contemporary circus. The atmosphere of this place carries a sense of dreams. Participants of the casting behaved differently among all these contemporary artworks: they tended to be in harmony with environment and could not allow themselves a bad taste. There is a special attitude to everything from a paintings to the bookstore. I congratulate you and Saint-Petersburg with the Erarta project”.

    Even though we are more used to performing in various jazz clubs, we became frequent guests at Erarta. I enjoy both playing here and observing artworks by such familiar St. Petersburg artists, as Valery Lukka, Vyacheslav Mikhailov, Felix Volosenkov.Each artist creates in accordance with his own inner world and thus introduces something new into painting or music. Erarta’s idea of arranging a festival under my name VOLKOV ManiFEST first was very surprising. But then I realized that it is a great opportunity to bring together those who I love and who I work with. So I’d like to thank Erarta for this great project and to thank everyone who made it here both as a viewer or a participant”.

    “I really like the museum building. Apart from anything else it makes a very strong impression itself. I also really enjoyed the museum collection which includes a lot of talented works. I found the idea of ‘U-Spaces’ a great invention since each of them immerses you into an absolutely special atmosphere. I wish Erarta all possible success, even though, as far as I could understand, it already has enough. Erarta has a very interesting audience, varied and large. Good luck with the new building and hope that you’ll keep arranging further great exhibitions and events”.

    “I’ve had a solo exhibition of my paintings in Erarta, and I can say that the venue is perfectly equipped. Exhibition halls with such proper lighting is a rare luck. In general, the organization of the exhibition left only positive impressions since everybody was very polite and ready to cooperate, which also does not always happen. I wish Erarta to keep its high level and I hope in future to exhibit my works here again”.
