On November 17 the KGallery Art Gallery will open its doors to all fans of cartoons. The exhibition entitled “A Century of Fedor Khitruk” will be held with support of the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation. It is dedicated to the centennial of the legendary director and teacher, Soyuzmultfim author, the creator of “Winnie-the-Pooh,” “Toptyzhka,” “History of One Crime,” “Boniface’s Vacation,” and others.

Fedor Khitruk is a renowned representative of an aesthetic direction in Soviet cartoons. He was one of the first to deploy the minimalist language, ridding his work of the customary realist perspective. His work has become a symbol of new freedom.

He immersed into his work fully, first breathing life into his characters, then directing films, then teaching and doing public service. Khitruk not only supported and protected art. He worked tirelessly each day to create conditions for development of individual cartoon projects, the films that anyone could understand.

The visitors to the exhibition will learn who Fedor Khitruk was, what was important for him in the making of cartoons and why he made his films. The exposition will present around one hundred rare exhibits from the collection of the State Central Museum of Film, lighting installations, memories of his students and the cartoons loved by everyone.

The exhibition program will include meetings with students and colleagues of Fedor Savelyevich Khitruk, including Yuri Norshteyn, Alexander Petrov, Mikhail Aldashin and Ivan Maximov. Da Animation Studio will present a number of workshops as well. The special program will be held in Poryadok Slov (Word Order) bookstore at 15 Nab. R. Fontanki.
