Lazar Khidekel (1904—1986) Exhibition

Best Implemented Project of Temporary or Permanent Museum Exposition

About the project
This exhibition is the first in Russia to comprehensively cover the career of Lazar Khidekel, a bright representative of Russian Avant-garde and the first Suprematist architect.
The basis of the exposition are Khidekel’s futuristic projects – cities of the future, his projects of space housing areas – Garden City, Aero City, Aqua City – and construction concepts implemented in Leningrad (St. Petersburg).
The exhibition has unique design – pylons in the exhibition hall support photo collages that demonstrate how graphics became something real.
Visitors can follow the vivid and important page of the Russian Avant-garde and see with their own eyes the evolution of Lazar Khidekel’s artistic and architectural concepts in 1930s through 1980s.
