Temporary Exhibitions. From 29 October until 17 April 2022.

Avant-garde in Russian art. The exhibition reflects the journey of stylistic variety and innovative creation which broke with established conceptions of art at the beginning of the 20th century. The Russian avant-garde artists such as Natalia and Mikhail Goncharova, Mikhail Larionov, Wassily Kandinsky and Kazimir Malevich, Alexander Rodchenko and Marc Rodchenko and Marc Chagall made themselves known in Europe with a unique style which distinguish them from other movements.

Maiakovski, poet and artist. Vladimir Maiakovsky defined himself as a poet, but in reality his creative activity surpassed the limits of literature and entered the artistic and interpretative plane, being part of the group of actors of the early 20th century and a prominent member of futurism, as well as an emissary of the Russian revolution. His most important artistic contribution is to be found in his posters for the Russian Telegraph Agency which transcended the political tone.

Sculptors Piotr Klodt and Yevgueni Lanceray also devoted themselves to this theme. The paintings weren’t limited to battles but also reflected the effect of war on every day living. The exhibition includes works on this theme by Kazimir Malévich, Sofia Dímshits-Tolstaia, Aleksandr Labás, Izrail Lizak and Yuri Jrzhanovski among others.
