A Revolution in Pictures

Share:

To mark the centenary of the October Revolution, London’s Tate Modern presents Red Star Over Russia. A revolution in visual culture 1905–55. The exhibition features artworks from the Soviet Union spanning five decades – among them, images by artists such as El Lissitzky and Gustav Klutsis. The show continues at the Tate Modern until 18 February 2018.

The October Revolution brought a surge of innovation to Russian art and graphic design. In the years after 1917, when Russia became the Soviet Union, these early experiments and diverse approaches gave rise to an entirely new visual culture. The Tate Modern in London, one of the world’s leading museums for modern and contemporary art,  explores this topic in a comprehensive exhibition.

Red Star Over Russia is dedicated to the works of Russian and Soviet artists, spanning from the first revolution in 1905 to Stalin’s death in 1953. The show comprises rarely-seen propaganda posters, photographs and prints from the David King Collection (now owned by Tate Modern). Among the exhibits are works by El Lissitzky, Gustav Klutsis, Dmitri Moor, Alexander Deineka, Nina Vatolina and Jewgeni Khaldei.
