ROSL ARTS: Russian Art at the time of the Revolution
Mon, April 3, 2017, 11:00 AM – 4:30 PM BST
Led by Natalia Murray, curator of the Royal Academy of Arts’ current landmark exhibition ‘Revolution: Russian Art 1917-1932’. Commemorating the centenary of the Russian Revolution, this study day will focus on a momentous period in Russian history between 1917, the year of the October Revolution, and 1932 when Stalin began his violent suppression of the avant-garde. Looking at the culmination of an artistic revolution, which started before the political one, and gave the world such artists as Chagall, Kandinsky, Malevich and Tatlin, Natalia Murray will connect the artistic production of various artistic movements with the political demands of the new Bolshevik society.
