Discover how Russian and Soviet artists created their unique visual identity

The year 2017 will mark the centenary of the October Revolution, which heralded a wave of innovation and design in Russia. In the years that followed 1917, as Russia became the Soviet Union, these early experiments and diverse practices formed a new visual culture for a nation that covered one sixth of the Earth.

Red Star Over Russia explores artworks made by Russian and Soviet artists over five decades, from the first revolution of 1905 to the death of Stalin in 1953. Rarely seen posters, photographs, and other graphic works from the David King Collection – now part of Tate – are on display, including work by El Lissitzky, Gustav Klutsis, Dmitri Moor, Alexander Deineka, Nina Vatolina and Yevgeny Khaldei.
