New exhibition: Work And Play Behind The Iron Curtain
GRAD, the Gallery for Russian Arts and Design currently features ‘Work and Play Behind the Iron Curtain’, an exhibition examining the changing face of Soviet design from the 1917 Revolution to Perestroika.
Produced in collaboration with the Moscow Design Museum and ZIL, the show combines over 50 key objects featuring the quirky and often charming design style that emerged post-1950s from the Soviet Union. The preceding period, noticeably bound by more severe, functional principles, is represented by models and photographs from the famous ZIL factory, which produced both armoured trucks and domestic appliances.
