Without the Youth Union the history of the Russian avant-garde art is hardly imaginable.
The Jewish Museum invites you to look at it as a revolutionary phenomenon that has had a powerful influence on the subsequent art movements.
The Youth Union in St. Petersburg was the first officially registered association of avant-garde artists: it appeared in 1910, several months ahead of the Moscow avant-garde association Jack of Diamonds. From 1910 to 1914, its members organized seven exhibitions, demonstrating a wide range of ideas and styles - from symbolism to cubism-futurism.
In the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center, visitors can see works by Kazimir Malevich, Olga Rozanova, Elena Guro, Mikhail Matyushin, Vladimir Tatlin, Pavel Filonov, Joseph Shkolnik, Mikhail Larionov and other prominent artists of the first third of the 20th century.
