The Black Square became a symbol of the new understanding of creativity in the 20th century. The black square literally was used by Malevich to close down the history of figurative art. The master dreamed of painting which creates and does not copy. He believed that works based on nature “remind us of something living the same way that skirts remind us of a woman.” Malevich presents the original shape (square) and the original colour (white and black). Black is the absence of colour and white is the melding of all colours. Such a solution encapsulates the potential of any and all paintings. “The square is not an image, just as a switch or a socket is not an electric current,” Malevich wrote. One cannot approach this work with the viewer’s usual criteria of beautiful/not beautiful, lively/not lively, I like it/I don’t like it. In the foreground there is not some aesthetic experience of reality but the wholeness of an idea itself.” Black Square is a unique manifesto by Suprematism, the movement in art created by Malevich.

Ilya Levitov, the president of the Russian Chess Federation board, noted that the opening and drawing will be entirely consistent with the match concept, which aims to emphasise the connection between chess and culture. “The match will be held at the Tretyakov Gallery, one of the best Russian pianists will perform at the opening, and well-known cultural figures – in addition to great chess players and former champions – have agreed to serve as honoured guests of the championship,” Mr Levitov said. 

The first game of the match will begin at 3.00pm on 11 May. The full schedule as well as all additional information can be found at the official website of the championship. This marks the first time that the match for the chess crown will be held in one of the world’s biggest museums. The match organisers are FIDE (World Chess Federation) and the RCF (Russian Chess Federation). The initiator and sponsor of the match in Moscow is Russian businessman Andrei Filatov (the co-owner of the N-Trans Group). Other sponsors of the world chess championship 2012 include businessman Gennady Timchenko, the company Novatek and the Ladoga charity foundation.
