25TH ANNUAL HILLA REBAY LECTURE
Maria Gough
“The Para-Architectural Imagination of Gustav Klutsis

Tues, Oct 30, 6:30 pm
In the early 1920s, the avant-garde artist Gustav Klutsis (Gustavs Klucis) proposed a pioneering series of para-architectural communication structures for the public diffusion of revolutionary speech, moving images, and printed matter in Moscow’s streets and squares. Focusing on the ways in which the artist utilized the medium of drawing in the wake of the advent of radio and film in order to imagine new forms of revolutionary communication, Maria Gough, Harvard University, reconstructs the historical parameters and significance of Klutsis’s original project, which is known to us through a corpus of thirty-odd drawings—a number of which had their first U.S. showing at the Guggenheim Museum in 1981. The talk concludes with a discussion of both Klutsis’s recycling of the project into his later work in graphic design and photomontage, and the ways in which contemporary artists have recently cited or repurposed it in their own endeavors.

Free on day of lecture (no advance ticket registration). A reception and exhibition viewing of Picasso Black and White follow.
