16 June 2016

Superwoman: ‘Work, Build and Don’t Whine’, an exhibition exploring the iconography of the Soviet woman in propaganda, opens this Saturday at London’s Gallery for Russian Arts and Design (GRAD).

GRAD is presenting the exhibition in collaboration with Thea Films. Curated by Dr Natalia Murray, actor and award winning filmmaker Dolya Gavanski and art critic and writer Nadia Plungian, the exhibition will present an array of material from the 1917 October Revolution to the fall of the Soviet Union and the arrival of Perestroika in 1991. As well as charting the development of the Soviet woman, Superwoman: ‘Work, Build and Don’t Whine’ will examine what her legacy is today.

Superwoman: ‘Work, Build and Don’t Whine’ will run from 18 June – 17 September at GRAD in central London. More information can be found here.
