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.

This exhibition will introduce viewers to the furniture preserved in the Russian Museum, a collection the public is not very familiar with. It will also open up a new perspective on well-known Russian works of art. What kinds of chairs exist? What are they made of? What do people do while seated? What poses do they adopt? What does an empty chair mean? A synthesis of painting, graphic art, sculpture, applied art, and design, the Russian Museum’s exhibition stimulates ideas on these questions and more.
The collection of masterpieces, chosen by the Russian Museum will allow you to make a first impression of the collection of the Russian Museum.
