Professor Christina Lodder

Kazimir Malevich: from Suprematist painting to Utopian architecture

Friday 14th March, at 4pm, in KLT2

The talk will consider Malevich’s experiments in applying the language of abstract painting to the articulation of architectural models and designs in the Soviet Union of the early 1920s, a case study in the impact of Revolutionary aspirations in the cultural sphere.

Professor Lodder is Professor of History and Philosophy of Art at the University of Kent. She is leading specialist in the field of Russian art and has written extensively about Malevich and Constructivism. She has contributed an essay to the catalogue of the forthcoming Malevich exhibition at Tate Modern (16 July to 26 October 2014).
