The paintings that form the exposition tell about the fate of a man who, together with his generation, experienced the changes that took place in the minds of his contemporaries. For Mamsikov, it was a path that ran through the enthusiasm and enthusiasm of the Khrushchev "thaw", disappointment and work in the underground during the "stagnation", the freedom of perestroika and the possibilities of a new time. The exhibition provides an opportunity to immerse yourself in the complex and interesting world of stories about which the generation of the "seventies" spoke and thought. The exposition presents over 60 works of the author created in the period from the 1960s to the present day.

Vladislav Mamsikov about the exhibition:
"The exhibition provides an opportunity to immerse yourself in the complex and interesting world of stories about which the generation of the "seventies" spoke and thought. Once among the works, you can fully plunge into the aesthetics and ideology of that restless and sincere generation,” – the curator says about the project.
