Russian ART / Soviet DESIGN
October 3 - November 21, 2020​
(Exhibition extended one week)

The concept behind this exhibition was to contrast two periods of 20th century Russian art, Russian Imperial art, including the white diaspora, with the advent of the Soviet regime after the October Revolution and the assassination of Tsar Nicholas II and his family. Previous traditional expressions of fine arts included icons, paintings, sculpture and drawing. This art, generally hand-made and one of a kind, was rejected by the Bolshevik regime and Lenin in favor of a non-elitist production of "art for the masses" which took the form of design as opposed to fine arts.
