This program documents the achievements of the Russian avant-garde movement and the impact of the Russian Revolution, which at first nurtured modern art as an emblem of communist culture and then banned it in favor of socialist realism. Set within the context of the Lenin/Stalin years it focuses on the contributions of the art critic Nikolai Punin and the work of major Soviet artists Kazimir Malevich, Vladimir Tatlin, and Pavel Filonov.
