DESCRIPTION

As part of Garage's partnership with the UNIQLO brand, art historian Tatyana Bortnik will introduce the audience to representatives of Russian avant-garde whose aesthetic discoveries have been inspiring artists, designers, and architects for over a century.

At the beginning of the twentieth century Russian art made an unbelievable breakthrough. The idea of transforming and improving all aspects of life via artistic activities gave birth to an entire a group of artists-inventors, whose practice combined the most diverse types of art—from photography and painting to design and the production of objects and installations. The audience will learn why the Russian avant-garde is considered a unique phenomenon in the history of art and will get to know the key principles introduced by artists representing this movement, as well as the context of their work, including friendship with the poet Vladimir Mayakovsky, the revolution as an inspiration source, and the influence of the French avant-gardists.
