Forged in the molten crater of the vanishing Russian empire scorched by the revolution, the Russian avant-garde was driven by a burgeoning need for political endorsements and nourished by a previously unfamiliar and yet overwhelming sensation of living in a new, liberated society that encouraged ingenuity, enthused imaginations, and incited all forms of artistic expression. Together with the rise of social propaganda, it turned conventional artists like Alexander Rodchenko, El Lizzitsky, Vladimir Tatlin, Vasyl Yermylov, Vladimir Mayakovsky, and many others into forefathers of commercial advertising and forbearers of what we now recognize as modern graphic design, identity creation, and branding.
The exhibit will feature selected works from recent international poster projects, including the Rodchenko 120and Mayakovsky 120 poster campaigns curated by Sergey Serov (Russia) and the Design Sphere poster exhibit curated by Vladimir Lesnyak (Ukraine), which celebrates the greatest writers, scientists, and artists of the Russian avant-garde.

Today we are all talking about the environment. To be eco-friendly nowadays is as trendy as it was chic to drive down the street in a hotrod only a few years ago. Things changed, as they always have, but why Now and why Nature? How did it all came to be? Why do we have to be green? Maybe there is no need to be environmentally conscious? Or maybe there is more to this then just a “latest fashion”? Our exposition is trying to find answers to these questions, by analyzing the works of leading graphic designers
of the day.
