REVOLTING PEASANTS

By Oleksandra Levina

“This March the Russian Revolution is going to celebrate its 100th anniversary. One hundred years ago Russia was shaken by a series of revolutions, which lead to an end of the Tsarist Rule.”

Revolution: Russian Art 1917-1932 is an exhibition held at the Royal Academy of Arts. It explores one of the most dramatic events in the history of the modern world through the perspective of art.

From 11th February until the 17th April, visitors would be able to study Russian post-Revolutionary art in the heart of London. The exhibition offers innovative works of Kandinsky, abstract painting by Malevich, Eisenstein’s films and even propaganda posters. A full-scale recreation of a Russian communal apartment is designed to dip the visitors in the atmosphere of Russian Revolution. Tickets start from £18.
