Revolution! Russian Art and music - sold out
Study Day | Royal Over-Seas League
Monday 3 April 2017 - 11:00 until 16:30
The day will consider the art and music of a momentous period in Russian history between 1917, year of the October Revolution, and 1932 when Stalin began his violent suppression of the avant-garde. Natalia Murray, curator of the Royal Academy of Arts’ current landmark exhibition Revolution: Russian Art 1917-1932 will look at the culmination of an artistic revolution, which started before the political one, giving the world such artists as Chagall, Kandinsky, Malevich and Tatlin. She will connect the artistic production of various artistic movements with the political demands of the new Bolshevik society. Additionally, cultural historian Roderick Swanston will introduce us to the parallels of Russian music of this period.
