Art Walk: “Gustav Klucis: Russian Avant-Garde Art in the 1920s–1930s”
|Location:||Kumu exhibition spaces|
A retrospective of the work of the Latvian artist Gustav Klucis (1895–1938), one of the greats of Constructivist and Russian agitprop art. The exhibition provides a survey of the artist’s experimental work, which employed innovative graphic design and photo montage in the service of both propaganda and the avant-garde.
The Kumu Art Museum offers you a great opportunity to spend your leisure time in a vibrant artistic space. On the last Sunday of every month, we offer a special drop-in guided tour that will introduce one of our latest exhibitions. Through our museum mediators, you can gain deeper insight into art and history.
At Kumu, you can explore art from the end of the 18th century up to the freshest art works, straight from artists’ studios to exhibition halls. Half of the rotating exhibitions deal with Estonian art, and the other half are international in scope. Kumu itself is a magnificent building, created to surprise and impress its visitors. It is located between the Baroque-style Kadriorg park and the Lasnamäe suburb, with its panel blocks of flats. Being the biggest art space in Estonia, Kumu’s role is to be both an educational and entertainment centre, a booster of art and artistic life, a place for reflection, and a creator and interpreter of meanings.
On the last Sunday of every month at 3 pm (NB! check the exact schedule, because national holidays might effect this!).
The meeting point is at the museum ticket office.
