Design on Film: Revolution
Author and academic Sir Christopher Frayling interviews film director Margy Kinmonth and discusses her film, REVOLUTION - New Art For A New World both with her and Dr Natalia Murray. The event included a screening of the film and coincided with the museum’s Imagine Moscow exhibition.
Author and academic Christopher Frayling discussed design on film with film-maker Margy Kinmonth, which included her recent intimate and exciting documentary film Revolution - New Art for a New World.
This film is a bold and exciting feature documentary that encapsulates a momentous period in the history of Russia and the Russian Avant-Garde. It tells the stories of artists including Chagall, Kandinsky, Malevich and others – pioneers who flourished in response to the Utopian challenge of building a New Art for a New World, only to be broken by implacable authority after 15 short years. Joining the discussion was Dr Natalia Murray, curator of the Royal Academy’s exhibition Revolution: Russian Art 1917-1932.
