Georgian Museum of Fine Arts
From the Hotel to the Museum
The current location of the museum had many previous tenants: From Hotel d’Orient during the Russian Empire to the Artist’s House during the Soviet Union. The latest of which has been reduced to rubble in the Civil War of 1990s. From 2013, idea to unite Georgian art under one institution was born and the construction of the museum was commenced. After 5 years of construction, the Georgian Museum of Fine Arts finally opened its doors on October 2, 2018.
A NEW PLACE FOR A TIMELESS COLLECTION
The museum displays the family collection of its founders, Gia Jokhtaberidze and Manana Shevardnadze. The mission of the family collection is to unite and promote Georgian soviet and post-soviet art in one art institution, as many of the exhibited works have never been shown to the wider audience.
The museum allows visitors to explore 3500 Georgian artworks that have been created by over 100 artists in the past 70 years. The permanent collection is distributed over three floors with a suggested tour beginning from the top floor. Based on chronological development from 5th, 4th and 3rd Floors, visitors can explore sculptures, paintings, graphic works, drawing-objects and collages. On all three floors, in terms of historical and political periods, a very diverse image is created - socialistic realism, the period of the Iron Curtain and the Cold War, the period of warming, the collapse of the Soviet regime, Civil War and Independent Georgia.
