REAL STUDIOS TAKES ROYAL ACADEMY TO RUSSIA


Real Studios is looking east again: following 2015's Cosmonauts blockbuster for the Science Museum, Real Studios has been asked to devise a sophisticated and evocative scheme for the Royal Academy of Arts looking at a fascinating period in 20th century Russian art. Opening February 2017, the exhibition: Revolution: Russian Art 1917-1932 will showcase the extraordinary period between the Russian Revolutions and the arrival of Stalin's oppressive censorship. The challenge for Real Studios is to devise a framework that complements a complex mixture of styles and mediums, from the paintings of Kandinsky and Malevich to socialist realist painting, by way of pioneering photographers, sculptors, filmmakers, graphic artists and radical architects.
