Encounter the Dynamic Spirit of Russian Modernism

March 26, 2015

Russian Center Art Gallery
Some of the most influential Russian avant-garde artists of the early 20th century—Kandinsky, Rodchenko and Gabo, to name a few—are celebrated in a new exhibition at the Amherst Center for Russian Culture.

On view through June 26, КИНЕТИЧЕСКИЕ РИТМЫ: The Dynamic Spirit of Russian Modernism brings together works from the Mead Art Museum’s Thomas P. Whitney ’37 Collection of Russian Art and exemplifies the ways in which artists were able to break free from the prevalent realistic canon in the first three decades of the 20th century.

when trees write                                                                                    если деревья пишут,
it’s to the white flowers                                                                         то белым цветам,
that walked the garden                                                                          что ходили по саду. 

when birds do                                                                                        если птицы,
it’s of what can’t be sung                                                                      о том, чего спеть нельзя.

lumps do not speak,                                                                              комья не говорят,
in flowerpots                                                                                          по цветочным горшкам
they have buried silence.                                                                       зарыли молчание.

 —Anna Glazova                                                                                   —Анна Глазова
