Call of the Avant-Garde: Constructivism and Australian Art

03 9850 1500

Until 8 Oct 2017

For more than one hundred years, artists have drawn inspiration from the early twentieth-century modernist art movement Constructivism.

Arising out of the cultural and political ferment of the Russian revolution of 1917, its abstract forms, utopian ideals and radical vision of art’s role in building a new society have continued to act as a beacon for successive generations of artists.

This extensive survey explores how Australian visual artists have responded to this ground breaking movement and reveals its enduring call upon their imaginations from the 1930s to today.

Works by Australian artists including Ralph Balson, Inge King, Robert Owen, Rose Nolan and Zoe Croggon will be shown alongside those by Aleksandr Rodchenko, El Lissitzky and other key proponents from the original period.
