Stanley Kubrick : The exhibition review

The starting point of Stanley Kubrick’s show, the UK’s first blockbuster show about a film-maker, was an one-point perspective corridor at the Design Museum’s which by no means did it reveal the treasures you were about to be confronted with.

RESTART : Organic and Analytic Art in Russian Avant Garde

This is my 2nd blogpost about the SMCA’s latest show RESTART (the show is now over, of course) . In my first post, I talked about the ‘Lubki’, comic art from the Russian Avant Garde . This new post is dedicated to another small section of the show, which was actually hosted in just one room, the Analytic and the Organic Art, which are in fact quite interesting movements under the bigger umbrella of the Russian Avant Garde.

If there is a place, other than Russia, where you can enjoy seeing Russian Avant Garde art works, this is Thessaloniki (Greece), as amazing as it may seem! The State Museum of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki hosts  the Costakis collection with 1.275 masterpieces of prominent Russian Avant Garde artists. As you can imagine, I am a frequent visitor because, even though, this is their permanent collection, the art works are not exhibited all year round  but rather in smaller numbers once or twice a year. The current exhibition showcases about 400 works and ….off I went to spend a few hours there.
