Lost Vanguard: Soviet Modernist Architecture, 1922–­32



Lost Vanguard: Soviet Modernist Architecture, 1922–­32 : Photographs by Richard Pare
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Museum of Modern Art  •  Ongoing
 
Lost Vanguard: Soviet Modernist Architecture, 1922–­32 examines Soviet avant-garde architecture in the postrevolutionary period. Little known or published, examples of this avant-garde architecture abound, not just in Moscow and St. Petersburg but throughout the former U.S.S.R., in cities such as Kiev, Baku, Ivanovo, and Sochi. The exhibition highlights some eighty photographs by architectural photographer Richard Pare, who made eight extensive trips between 1992 and 2002, and created nearly ten thousand images to compile documentation of these structures, many of which are now in various states of decay, transformation, and peril. Pare's images are supplemented by Soviet periodicals to provide historical context for an exploration of this extraordinary architecture.
