Realism and the Shadow of the Avant-Garde

March 12, 2019

Starting February 26, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is presenting “Art x Architecture: Russian Intersections 1917–37,” a three-part lecture series by Jean-Louis Cohen, the Sheldon H. Solow Professor in the History of Architecture at New York University's Institute of Fine Arts. Cohen will chronicle the radical changes that affected Russian art and architecture during the 20 years following the Bolshevik Revolution. Russian art and architecture went through rapid and contradictory phases during this time. Lectures include an exploration of planned utopias, constructivism, and the intersection of Realism and the Avant-Garde.
