Constructing Utopia: Books and Posters from Revolutionary Russia (1913-1940)

decoration08 Oct. 2011|12 Feb. 2012
The Russian Revolution of 1917 spawned an equally revolutionary transformation in book and poster design. The avantgarde movement had lasting effects on the design and content of printed materials. This exhibition creates a dialogue between two exciting branches of graphic design: rare books speak to the formative artistic years of the avantgarde, and large-scale, dramatic posters demonstrate the impact of this revolutionary art movement on the everyday visual culture of Soviet Russia. On show are, among many others masterpieces, works by Vladimir Mayakovsky, Alexander Rodchenko, and Kasimir Malevich.
