Women of the Revolution. Russia 1907-1934

The avant-garde was female! At least in Russia around the 1917 Revolution, when Russian artists wanted to contribute to a classless and just society. The large number of women participating in this group of artists was striking. This exhibition was part of the year Netherlands-Russia 2013 and focussed on important Russian avant-garde artists as Aleksandra Ekster, Ljoebov Popova, and Varvara Stepanova. Many of the works on display had never been exhibited in the Netherlands before. The exhibition was previously on show in the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum in Ludwigshafen am Rhein.
