Event Description
Evening Tour: Revolution! The Russian Avant-Garde

Though they are among modern art's lesser-known movements, Suprematism and Constructivism laid the foundation for the geometric abstraction that would persist throughout the 20th century, reaching its apex in the Minimalism of the 1960s. Join us for an exclusive after-hours tour of A Revolutionary Impulse: The Rise of the Russian Avant-Garde and consider the impact of groundbreaking artists like Kazimir Malevich and El Lissitzky. Discover a revolution in painting, sculpture, drawing, prints, film, design, and photography from this critical period in history, followed by a visit to the images of social and artistic revolution these works inspired in another pivotal decade: the 1960s.

A limited number of tickets ($75; $65 MoMA Members and employees of Corporate Members) are available. The tour is an hour long. For more information, please contact groupservices@moma.org or (212) 708-9685.
