The museum was founded in 1988 by the People's Assembly of Armenia. after the first exhibition of S. Parajanov's Homeland in the State Art Museum. Part of the collection was bought at 40 thousand rubles after the exhibition, and the other part was presented to Parajanov's museum. In the same year Sarkis Parajiantsants was given two adjacent structures for dwelling and museum in Dzoragyugh ethnographic district. Due to the 1988 earthquake, construction works in Armenia were suspended for a short time. That was the reason why the museum was opened only in 1991. The main collection of the museum consists of about 600 Parajanov works. drawings, sketches for movies, dolls, hats, many of which were exhibited at the People's Art Museum in Yerevan in 1988 and 1989, as well as the carpet and personal belongings of the Tiflis House, which moved to Yerevan under his will during his lifetime. During the years of its existence the museum fund has been replenished and today the number of subjects is 1500 units. Funds maintain directors' correspondence addressed to Lili Brik, A. Tarkovski, Yu. Nikulin, V. Kathanian and other cultural figures. About 700 works are included in the museum's exhibition. Two memorial rooms have been restored to some parts of Paradjanov's Tiflis house and the interior of the Kiev apartment. The author's unique reaction to life events, his plastic worldview is expressed through his creations - the assembly, smooth and spatial collages, drawings, and sketches of motion pictures. Sergei Parajanov's work has no analogues in world art. It is distinguished by its high skill, vivid imagination and ingenuity. His work gives a special charm and grace to the diversity of used objects and material. Most of them are in prison. Parajanov was expelled from the Soviet cinema for 15 years, from 1973 to 1977 and 1982 in strict regime camps and prisons. Over the past 27 years, the museum has organized 64 exhibitions in more than 30 countries, including Cannes, Thessaloniki, Moscow, Kiev, Rome, London, Los Angeles, Tehran, Beijing, Paris, Brazil, Canada, Vilnius, and elsewhere.
One of the coolest sights in Yerevan...a must see if you are into art and cinema...DO NOT MISS IT!...
