Educational program for “Avant-garde and Aviation” exhibition
At Jewish Museum & Tolerance Center, Moscow
10 August, at 5:00pm
Selim Khan-Magomedov, a historian of Avant-garde architecture, called projects of Lazarus Khidekel “missing element in the Suprematism evolution from plane painting to architecture.” Lazarus Khidekel, a student of El Lissitzky and Kazimir Malevich from Vitebsk, who later became a professional architect, in 1920-1930s created projects of architecture of the future: the flying cities, towns on piers and residential space stations. Several projects from this period are presented by the Society of Lazarus Khidekel for the exhibition “Avant-garde and aviation” at Jewish Museum & Tolerance Center in Moscow.
Regina Khidekel, an art critic, curator and president of Lazarus Khidekel Society, will talk about “suprematist constructivism” of Lazarus Khidekel, its impact on modern architecture and urban planning. Regina is also a director of the American-Russian Cultural Center in New York (RACC) and author of numerous publications on the history of Russian avant-garde. Meeting with Regina Khidekel concludes the series of meetings with collectors and heirs of artists as a part of the educational program for “Avant-garde and aviation” exhibition.
