For the first time in Argentina and Latin America, Fundación Proa, together with the State Russian Museum, presents an exhibition devoted to the full scope of the career of KAZIMIR MALEVICH (Kiev, 1878 / Leningrad, 1935), a fundamental artist to understand the new artistic tendencies of the 20th. Century.
The exhibition, curated by specialist Eugenia Petrova, contains the initial symbolist paintings, the Cubo-Futurist works, the extraordinary paintings portraying peasant life and urban landscapes, and the artists' famous portraits and singular geometric figures. Suprematism is a key element of the presentation, with an extensive archive about the development and context of the movement.
Whereas Picasso is considered the artist that most contributed to the renewal of the human shape, and Duchamp to the foundation of conceptual art, KAZIMIR MALEVICH can be credited with the opening of the path to abstract art with the creation of Suprematism, essential movement in the history of 20th. Century art.
KAZIMIR MALEVICH is furthered enriched with exhaustive documental material from Professor Kiblinsky, who recreates, for the first time, the work “History over the Sun”, with 15 garments that Malevich designed for that play (whose video will be presented in the Auditorium).
An extensive cultural extension program me will be developed together with the Education Department of Proa. It includes diverse projects for families and schools, together with multimedia material from our YOUTUBE channel and PROARADIO Soundcloud conversations.
With this exhibition, Proa launches the celebration of its 20 years of history, continuing to pursue its mission to present the greatest creators of Modern and Contemporary art.
