The Utopian Avant-Garde: Soviet Film Posters of the 1920s

February 24–August 21, 2022

In the aftermath of the Bolshevik Revolution and subsequent civil war in Russia, a group of young, talented artists emerged, ready to contribute to and invent a new Soviet culture. As the government embrace cinema as the best means of propaganda, these designers created dynamic, experimental, explosive posters, papering the streets with wild colors and arresting imagery to draw people to the movies.

This exhibition explores the origins, high points, and eventual demise of this golden age of Soviet graphic design, showcasing the work of Alexander Rodchenko, the Stenberg brothers, Semyon Semyonov, and many more.
