Filming the Revolution: Ukrainian Film Posters of the 1920s

In contrast to late-1920s Russian graphic design, Ukrainian film posters remain practically unknown to the broader public, both in Ukraine and internationally. Only in the last five years have publications on Ukrainian poster design of the 1920s – 1930s begun to appear. This exhibition includes reproductions of the works of artists such as Ibrahym Litynskyi, Myron Chepovskyi, Yosyp Kuzkovskyi and posters designed by Oleksandr Dovzhenko, the famous Ukrainian film director.

Curated and introduced by Konstantin Akinsha
