60 exhibits are on display at the exhibition “Infinite Tatlin Bowl of the Great” in the Tretyakov gallery at Krymsky Val.
It presents works created by Vladimir Tatlin from the 1910s to the early 1930s: counterreliefs, paintings and drawings, as well as his projects of clothes and household items.
The exhibition runs till November, 27th.
Vladimir Tatlin was one of the central figures of Russian avant-garde, the instigator of constructivism, the main opponent of Kazimir Malevich, and the generator of ideas, most of which were not implemented into reality, but went down in the history of art.
It is interesting to note that the only lifetime personal exhibition of Tatlin took place in 1932, on the threshold of the total victory of socialist realism.
