'A SLAP IN THE FACE' AT THE ESTORICK COLLECTION

The first exhibition in England to focus on the complex and fascinating
relationship between Russian and Italian Futurism is to be held at the
Estorick
Collection of Modern Italian Art, 39a Canonbury Square, London N1, from
Wednesday 28 March until Sunday 10 June 2007.

The exhibition draws upon works from the Musée national d’art moderne,
Paris,
the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection, the Costakis Collection, Tate Modern,
the
Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum,
the
British Library and numerous private collections from Europe, the United
States
and the UK. It represents an unparalleled opportunity for British
audiences to
see important, but rarely seen, examples of Italian and Russian Futurist
art in
the intimate surroundings of this London gallery.

A Slap in the Face! Futurists in Russia has been organized in conjunction
with
the Hatton Gallery at Newcastle University, where it will be on display
from 23
June to 18 August 2007. The exhibition is curated by John Milner,
Professor
Emeritus in Art History at Newcastle University who is currently teaching
courses on Russian art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London.
Professor
Milner has published many books on Russian art, including Vladimir Tatlin
and
the Russian Avant-garde (1983), Kazimir Malevich and the Art of Geometry
(1996)
and A Dictionary of Russian and Soviet Artists, 1420-1970 (1999). The
exhibition
is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue.
