The exhibition of Vologda’s lace will kick off at the National Museum of Liechtenstein on September 30th, 2016 and it will last till January 2017.

A cooperation agreement was signed between the Vologda Lace Museum and the National Museum of Liechtenstein several years ago. The parties agreed on cooperation in various areas of museum activity, including exhibition, scientific, methodical, information, and publishing.

The main purpose of the exhibition is to promote this brand of the Vologda Region in the European countries, to strengthen cultural ties between the Vologda Oblast and Liechtenstein and set up a partnership that will last. Vologda has always been one of the main centres of Russian lace tatting, and in the 19th century it became the most famous one. It was that time when lace-makers began to tat lace patterns in the form of wonderful stars and snowflakes.

Vologda laces have won deserved fame and world-wide recognition for their high artistic value, rich ornament and excellent workmanship.

The exhibition in the capital of Liechtenstein, Vaduz, will be held under the heading “Art of lace-making: Vologda lace – treasure of Russia’s North”. Vologda Museum of Lace has already featured the greatest masterpieces of European lace from Liechtenstein. This time artworks from the Vologda State Museum-Preserve will be on display in Vaduz, Liechtenstein.

On display there will be also hand-made lace birds submitted to the international contest “Lace bird of wonder” from different parts of the world - Russia, Germany, Croatia, Poland, France, Finland, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Australia and other countries.

The Vologda Region has been sustaining cultural ties with Switzerland and Liechtenstein for years. The year 2015 saw signing of a cooperation agreement between Vologda and the Swiss Gallery “Beyeler Collection Foundation” and the National Museum of Liechtenstein.
