Chagall, Lissitzky, Malevich. Russian avant-garde in Vitebsk (1918 - 1922)

Exhibition March 28 − July 16, 2018
Exhibition“Russian avant-garde in Vitebsk” in the Paris Center Pompidou is devoted to the Russian avant-garde between 1918 and 1922 and focuses on the work of three of its iconic figures - Marc Chagall, El Lissitzky and Kazimir Malevich. The exhibition also presents works by teachers and students of the Vitebsk art school, founded in 1918 by Chagall, Vera Yermolaeva, Nikolai Suetin, Ilya Chashnik, Lazar Khidekel and David Yakerson.

Thanks to 250 papers and documents that were not reunited earlier, this show for the first time sheds light on the post-revolutionary years, during which the history of art was written in Vitebsk, away from the major cities of Russia.
