A brush with the Rus­sian avant-garde

From 1910 to 1920, the Rus­sian avant-garde reached its zenith. New artis­tic schools emerged at a rapid pace and all com­peted with each other through ex­tremely di­verse art­works. At this ex­hi­bi­tion in Vi­enna, 130 pieces are on dis­play, from masters such as Kaz­imir Male­vich, Marc Cha­gall, Natalia Gon­charova and Mikhail Lar­i­onov. It also charts the avant-garde’s pro­gres­sion from prim­i­tivism – which cel­e­brated cul­tures out­side of the West – to supre­ma­tism, a geo­met­ric move­ment as seen in the work of Male­vich. Cha­gall to Male­vich: the Rus­sian Avant-Gardes runs at the Al­bertina un­til June 26. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.al­bertina.at.

New Issey Miyake ex­hi­bi­tion un­folds in Tokyo

With a look that man­ages to be both fu­tur­is­tic and some­how time­less, the ca­reer of Ja­panese cloth­ing de­signer Issey Miyake con­tin­ues to im­press. This ex­hi­bi­tion in Tokyo takes a broad look at his 45-year ca­reer, from the 1970s to to­day. High­lights of the show in­clude a row of man­nequins that are made from 365 pan­els of laser-cut pa­per; a ma­chine manned by two peo­ple that shows how his renowned pleats are made; and pieces from his ac­claimed shows in the 1980s. Also part of the ex­hi­bi­tion are video pre­sen­ta­tions and in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays for chil­dren. Miyake Issey Ex­hi­bi­tion: The Work of Issey
