Constructing Revolution: Soviet Propaganda Posters from Between the World Wars

The 1917 Russian Revolution ushered in a relatively short-lived era of experimentation and idealism in the visual arts. Including some of the most iconic images in the history of graphic design, Constructing Revolution will present more than fifty Soviet propaganda posters, among them works by major figures of the early twentieth-century avant-garde such as Vladimir Mayakovsky and Alexander Rodchenko. These posters, offering a glimpse into a period of political upheaval and cultural ferment, were part of a campaign to provide a new visual language that would convert Communist aspirations into readily accessible, urgent, public art. Constructing Revolution is organized by the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Brunswick, Maine, and will be displayed at The Wolfsonian in conjunction with the library installation Red and Black: Revolution in Soviet Propaganda Graphics. Featured works in this exhibition are generously lent by Svetlana and Eric Silverman.
