The Royal Academy of Arts will be marking the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution with a special exhibition of works by Russian artists.

Famous artists like Kandinsky, Malevich, Chagall and Rodchenko were some of the big names to live through one of the most momentous events in world history. And whilst Russian society was shaken to its foundations, the arts initially thrived and flourished. But that optimism was not to last: by the end of 1932 Stalin had brought the curtain down on creative freedom.

This far-ranging exhibition will explore the 15-year period before the clampdown in 1932, and include everything from Kandinsky's boldly innovative compositions, to the abstract works by Malevich and the Suprematists. There will also be photography, sculpture, filmmaking, propaganda posters and graphic design — and a full-scale recreation of a Russian apartment filled with everyday objects.
