Description

127 works by 30 Russian artists, 1911-1929. Avant-garde artists crated the designs during a period when they were looking for ways to revolutionize artistic expression as dramatically as the Revolution had changed the political situation in Russian. The exhibition illustrates the beginnings of the move form surface to space in stage design.
