If you're wondering why there are so many Russian exhibitions in London at the moment, then it's because 2017 marks the centenary of the October Revolution, when Russia began it's march towards becoming the Soviet Union.

In the years that immediately followed 1917, Russian artists practically invented a whole new culture, giving the country its own unique visual identity.

"Red Star Over Russia" will explore the birth of this new art up until Stalin's death in 1953, using a collection of rarely seen posters, photographs, and other pieces from the David King Collection, including works by El Lissitzky, Gustav Klutsis, Dmitri Moor, Alexander Deineka, Nina Vatolina and Yevgeny Khaldei.
