“Art born in the revolution: Russian art and the state 1917-1932” conference in London

The Royal Academy of Arts, in association with the Courtald Institute of Art, presents a two-day academic conference supported by the In artibus Foundation to coincide with the exhibition Revolution: Russian Art 1917–1932.

The first day of the conference is held at the Courtauld Institute of Art and aims to address the question of how useful visual art was to the revolution, as well as the ways in which cinema, printed media and consumer goods were used for propaganda purposes. The second day at the Royal Academy of Arts considers the death and immortalisation of key revolutionary figures such as Lenin and the consequent establishment of autocratic rule under Stalin, alongside the impact that social, political and economic developments had on the visual arts and culture.

The conference attracted a packed audience with tickets sold out a week before the event.

More information can be found at Courtald Institute of Art and Royal Academy of Arts websites.
