Revolution: New Art for a New World
6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, 17 March 2017
Join us for a screening of 'Revolution: New Art for a New World', hosted by SLOVO.
Margy Kinmonth joins us for the screening of Revolution: New Art for a New
World, a bold and exciting feature documentary that encapsulates a
momentous period in the history of Russia.
This spectacular cinematic
feast made to commemorate the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, demonstrates
the crucial importance of art for the creation of the new regime. Gaining
exclusive access to the vast collections of the State Tretyakov Gallery, the
State Russian Museum and the State Hermitage Museum, Kinmonth shows on the
widescreen both works by celebrated artists, such as Marc Chagall, Wassily Kandinsky
and Kazimir Malevich, and hidden gems by lesser-known avant-garde masters:
Gustav Klutsis, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Varvara Stepanova, and Liubov
Popova. With Revolution: New Art for a New World Margy Kinmonth
provides both the art lover and the regular moviegoer with an interest in
history, a fascinating journey through the world of Russian avant-garde
following the 1917 Revolution.
