In this overview of one of the most successful exhibitions of 2017, ‘Revolution: Russian Art 1917-1932’, which took place at the Royal Academy of Arts in February-April 2017, curator Dr Natalia Murray will investigate how artists from Kazimir Malevich to Alexander Deineka made Russian art revolutionary in the first 15 years after the Bolshevik revolution of 1917.

Triggering radical innovations in Russian art, artists including Kandinsky, Malevich, Tatlin, Rodchenko and Popova turned the storm of the Russian Revolution into a radical experiment in art and society. However, this was short-lived with Socialist Realism becoming the dominant force from the 1930s.
