Staging the Ukrainian Avant-Garde of the 1910s and 1920s 

Through September 13, 2015

 

125 original art works for the theater by 13 artists, many who were exiled
or executed during the Stalinist purges of the 1930s for their perceived
political beliefs. The exhibition comprises 142 objects on loan from the
collection of the Museum of Theater, Music, and Cinema Arts of Ukraine in
Kyiv, including art works on paper of costume, set, and makeup design,
photographs, and original posters.

 

See works by Cubo-Futurist painter Alexandra Exter, who revolutionized the
balletic stage with dancer and ballet choreographer Bronislava Nijinska; the
premier designer for the productions of the Berezil Theater, Vadym Meller;
and Anatol Petrytsky, whose singularly rich compositions reflected Ukraine's
own popular culture, traditions, and customs.
