Ask the average gallery visitors about the Post-war period of the Russian Avant-Garde and you may find yourself met with a few blank faces. Russian art can sometimes slip under the radar when it comes to dedicated retrospectives. Major galleries may house some key works by major artists, but they rarely are able to explore themes in any depth. This is no longer the case for those that venture over to the Centre Pompidou.
Their current show – which runs until July 16th – is a celebration of the Vitebsk Art School. More specifically, it honours the work of El Lissitzky, Kazimir Malevitch, and their peer Marc Chagall. There are more than 200 pieces of art on display here, with work ranging from the period of 1918 to 1922. Art lovers are encouraged to head on over before the CHAGALL, LISSITZKY, MALÉVITCH show ends to learn a little more about this important period in Russian culture.
