Soviet Art & Architecture

The Royal Academy of Arts is displaying a collection of Soviet Art and Architecture from 1915 to 1935 in Central London.

Romanticism plays a role in the phase of a brave new world to depict the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution and social order.

There’s a transformation of the Russian society conveying the industry, infrastructure and design. The exhibit focuses on the contemporary side of Russia through the works of radical artists and architects including Moisei Ginzburg, Ilia Golosov, Liubov Popova, Aleksandr Rodchenko and Richard Pare.

In an ideal world, the exhibit represents the time of experimentation before Premier Joseph Stalin introduced his socialist realism in collaboration with artistic movement similar to western nations.

After walking through the exhibit, the viewer realizes that the art and architecture buildup transcends towards disappointment after a heroic time. The fact that within that time there was a doomed vision of how society should operate in the Soviet Union makes the artwork even more profound.The exhibit expresses a sort of symbol for new artistic freedom contrasting dictatorship and concepts for the proletariat lifestyle.
