The exhibition “Aliaksei Glebau. Glorifying man”
On June 16, 2023 at 4.00 pm, the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus (exhibition building, 24 Karl Marx Street) will host the grand opening of the exhibition “Aliaksei Glebau. Glorifying Man”.

In 2023, 115 years will have passed since the birth of Aliaksei Glebau (March 11 [24], 1908, the village of Zveravichi, Krasninsky district, Smalensk province – October 2, 1968, Minsk), People’s Artist of the BSSR, laureate of the State Prize of the BSSR (posthumously), veteran of the Great Patriotic War, sculptor and teacher.

Aliaksei Glebau belongs to the galaxy of artists whose creative work began during the formation and development of the Belarusian sculptural school. The master’s life and creative path are one of the brightest yet shortest pages in the history of Belarusian art in the mid-20th century.

Aliaksei Glebau’s exhibition at the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus will cover the periods of the master’s creative work from the 1940s to the 1960s, from the war years to the last years of his life. All works present the main stages of the sculptor’s path in art, revealing the key directions of his artistic pursuits. The exhibition will display sculptures from the collection of the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus and the funds of the Belarusian Union of Artists, as well as documents and photographs from the funds of the Belarusian State Archive-Museum of Literature and Art, the Belarusian State Archive of Film and Photo Documents, from sculptor Aliaksandr Kastryukou’s personal archive and the archive of Aliaksei Glebau’s family. The exhibition space will be supplemented by portraits of Aliaksei Glebau – paintings, sculptural and graphic works, created by his colleagues in the creative shop, from the collection of the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus, as well as a video film and a radio program about the sculptor with unique recordings of his voice from the funds of the Belteleradiocompany.


The exhibition has been extended 
until August 21 inclusive
