Posters of the Revolutionary Era

Vladimir Lebedev. Ready for work – riffle by your side. 1921. Linocut
13 september 2017—6 november 2017

The genre of the political poster in the Russian art formed and developed in the first years after the Revolution of 1917. The exhibition at the Marble Palace dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Revolution presents a large-scale and impressing outlook of the birth and formation of the Soviet poster as a specific art genre on the example of the artworks from the collection of the Russian Museum.

The poster rapidly responded to the brightest events of its time and could express in an understandable form the radical changes of the social life during the revolutionary period. The artistic experiments in the poster art influenced largely the future development of this genre and are still relevant in the contemporary artists’ work.

The exhibition will comprise over 100 art pieces on different subjects – from political propaganda to education, including the world-famous works by such masters as V.Lebedev, V.Kozlinsky, D.Moor, N.Kogout, V.Mayakovsky, V.Deni, and others, along with the posters by unknown artists. The exhibition will be accompanied by video materials on the topic.

The exhibition is supported by JSC NOVATEK

The exhibition is opening at 4 PM.
