“See USSR” Exhibition

BI0010_1_m  AntikBar is participating in the See USSR exhibition from 7th June to 31st August at GRAD, the new Gallery for Russian Arts and Design in London.
This exhibition is the first to be hosted by GRAD and will showcase a country of leisure, comfort and luxury against the widely accepted notion of the striking heroic and industrial imagery produced by the Soviet Union during the 1920-30s. A range of external Soviet publicity such as Intourist travel posters, magazines and other ephemera will be displayed with internal propaganda items including textiles.
Visit the News & Events page at www.antikbar.co.uk for further information.
