Modernity and the city

Exhibition December 1, 2018 − July 7, 2019
Between 1870 and 1914, the second wave of the industrial revolution brought about changes that would have been difficult to imagine in the early centuries. Cars, airplanes and integrated electrical networks have transformed the urban environment. These advances in technology have stimulated the production of works of art in new and exciting ways.

ThisExhibition combines engravings and drawings by European artists such as Fernand Léger, Kazimir Malevich, Lionel Feininger and El Lissitzky, who captured the impact of industrialization on urban life in the early 20th century.

Working in a variety of innovative styles, from representative to abstract, these artists emphasized the modernity of their subjects, applying a unique artistic philosophy.
