100 Years of the Russian Revolutioin (1917-2017)

At this exhibit we tried to recreate the “ideal” image of the revolution - the view artists had of it for half a century (from the 1930s to the 1970s). They created art, graphics and posters on the subject, many of which fit with the official iconography of the time. Others, however, unexpectedly move outside of the realm of typical soviet artwork. Attitudes towards the revolution changed over time, and this is apparent in the artistic changes as well.

1953-1968. The Thaw: Art of Life

Looking at the Soviet art of the 1950s-1960s one might see the progression from the optimism of the 50s to the light heroic melancholy of the first half of the 60s and then to the disenchantment of the late 60s and early 70s. To continue a project of major Moscow museums devoted to the Thaw period the NB Gallery shows the most interesting artworks of this period from its collection. The display includes painted and graphic works, architectural projects, samples of designs, originals of book illustrations.
