Russian Constructivism

As someone who has worked as a graphic designer I've seen how the Constructivist and succeeding Bauhaus movements influenced designers tremendously in the 20th century. My work has also been inspired and greatly influenced by these masters of graphic communication and I am always eager to see more from this genre.

So, I thought I'd share some info on this show in NY at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery of Russian Constructivist posters plus a model for the Monument to the Third International by constructivist artist, Vladimir Tatlin.

It's listed at NY Artbeat:
"Revolutionary Film Posters: Aesthetic Experiments of Russian Constructivism (1929-33)" Exhibition
Venue: Tony Shafrazi Gallery 
Schedule: From 2011-05-06 To 2011-07-30 
Address: 544 W 26th St., New York, NY 10001
Phone: 212-274-9300 Fax: 212-334-9499

If you can't make it to the show, there is another website that has featured some of these great movie posters at Enjoy.
