Constructing the Revolution: Soviet Propaganda Posters from between the World Wars explores the remarkably wide-ranging body of propaganda posters created as an artistic consequence of the 1917 Russian Revolution. Marking its centennial, this exhibition delves into a relatively short-lived era of unprecedented experimentation and utopian idealism that produced some of the most iconic images in the history of graphic design. Featuring rare and outstanding works from The Eric and Svetlana Silverman Collection, it highlights the variety of poster genres and methods by prominent artists of different aesthetic movements. Posters supplied a new iconography, converting Soviet aspirations into readily accessible, urgent, public art.
