The focus of this exhibition is a series of six large works on paper created during a visit to Sydney, Australia, in 2012. Titled “Botanical Garden Sydney” they respond to a bamboo plant that the artist encountered. Exhibited here for the first time, these stunning works surround viewers with a luscious, richly textured and colored, immersive environment.

The exhibition explores the remarkably wide-ranging body of propaganda posters created as an artistic consequence of the 1917 Russian Revolution. Marking its centennial, this exhibition delves into a relatively short-lived era of unprecedented experimentation and utopian idealism that produced some of the most iconic images in the history of graphic design.
