Huge thanks to the organisers of this unique forum, which has become a really important event for the two universities and many young researchers in a very short time. This is an amazing opportunity and an impulse to exchange different opinions, to sustain professional network and personal connections, to get to know recent tendencies in the art history research and to share – for many young researches for the first time – the results of your own academic achievements and learn how to do it from experts. Special thanks to the State Hermitage and, in particular, to the department of Classical Antiquities that instantly supported the idea of holding the conference. The conference is getting bigger, its programme is becoming busier and sometimes it is quite hard to follow the work of all sections. However, despite all responsibilities that its grandiose scale and image of institutions imply, the main advantage of the conference is that it creates an atmosphere of a big event, a celebration. Inspiration and a lively dialogue bring all the participants together: researchers of different generations, those who present their works and those who listen, volunteers. A sense of movement transforms this academic event into a cultural forum at a city scale. I wish you prosperity and new interesting turns on your way.

The conference “Actual problems of theory and history of art” is organised at the highest level every single year. It is a real celebration of academia, culture and art! Participants make numerous useful contacts, get new knowledge in various aspects of art, join international community and get invited to publish their works. Excellent quality of the illustrated compendium after the conference is a great achievement from the side of the organisers. I recommend the conference to my friends, PhD students, both experienced researchers and those, who just start their academic career.

I have attended the conference since 2012. This forum gives students an opportunity to represent their works along with experts and this fact makes a great support to young researchers. The cooperation of such big institutions as SPbSU, State Hermitage and MSU reveals high results. Foreign guests come to the conference. With no doubts, we can say that the conference was organised at a very high professional level and it went very well.

The conference “Actual problems of theory and history of art” is one of the most impressive Russian forums, where researchers can discuss all problematic themes that appear in Russian and world art.

The conference “Actual problems…” becomes an exciting event in its importance and scale. Discussions of new problems within sections or beyond them are positive, lively and actual at all times. This is the environment where science comes alive! New concepts and friendships develop during the conference – thanks to its brilliant organisation – more new opportunities open every year. Thanks to this amazing conference!

Many thanks to the organisers and volunteers for the idea of these amazing conferences and its implementation into life. They turned out to be very interesting and useful for my academic career, gave me new bright and poetic impressions and helped to find kind and sympathetic friends! I wish everyone, who participated in the conference, to keep on with success!

I am gladly surprised that such a big event was organised conceptually, beautifully and efficiently and that the conference became a cultural phenomenon. Friendly atmosphere made it especially charming and left our foreign colleagues (at least those I had a chance to meet in the last days of October) pleased.

I think that the conference “Actual problems of theory and history of art” 2014 is one of the best conferences in humanities in Russia and possibly in Europe.
1. The conference was held on a base of SPbSU with its traditions and the State Hermitage with its richest collections.
2. Good choice of speakers: both young professionals (and they were numerous, all bright and brilliant) and leading Russian and foreign experts presented their papers.
3. Diverse, exciting and very thought through programme of the after part of the conference: amazing trips to Novgorod and Pavlovsk, tours to the Restoration centre of the State Hermitage, lectures in the galleries of the Winter Palace – all that was a generous gift for the participants.
4. Opportunity to publish our papers in a compendium after the conference.
5. Friendly organising committee, which took care of all of us. Genuine desire to help and support can be said the main characteristic of the people, responsible for this conference.
This is, I think, the most valuable. Many thanks for this “celebration of art” that you created!

I want to say thanks to the organisers for an opportunity to take part in the conference, which work is very important in terms of integrating Russian art in the world cultural sector, preserving cultural and historical heritage.
Thank you for a chance to meet colleagues and share various opinions.
Thanks to the organising committee for their kindness, attentions to details and efficient work.
