"Painting Revolution: Kandinsky, Malevich and the Russian Avant-Garde"
2000-07-22 until 2000-10-08
Chicago Cultural Center
Chicago, IL, USA United States of America

This major traveling exhibition, being presented in only five American cities, features 85 rarely seen paintings by 31 artists whose achievements put Russia at the forefront of contemporary art in the first three decades of the 20th century. The exhibition includes a rich variety of figurative and abstract paintings by masters of their time Vasilii Kandinsky and Kazimir Malevich. Internationally acclaimed as pioneers of modern art, Kandinsky and Malevich were among the first artists to create abstract art, a style developing simultaneously throughout Europe.

Other artists include Natalia Goncharova, Mikhail Larionov, Liubov Popova, Alexander Rodchenko and Vladimir Tatlin, whose ideas were eagerly taken up by later generations in art, architecture, design and fashion. Loans for this extraordinary exhibition are from The State Russian Museum and twelve regional museums in Russia. Proceeds from the American tour will benefit these museums. Many pieces have never been seen outside Russia.

The exhibition is organized and circulated in the United States by the Foundation for International Arts and Education, Bethesda, MD, in conjunction with The State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg and ROSIZO of the Russian Ministry of Culture, Moscow.

In Chicago, Stolichnaya Russian Vodka in conjunction with United Distillers & Vintners is the featured corporate underwriter of the exhibition. Additional corporate underwriting was generously provided by BP Amoco. Q.P. Restaurant, Del Ray Markets, Inc., and Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Chicago have furnished invaluable in-kind support.
