The title of this course, East Meets West, signals a thematic tension that continues to prevail across both political and artistic landscapes between Russia and the West. In this course, we will explore art produced by Russian artists at the turn of the 20th century, and discuss how their artistic production was either parallel or perpendicular to the practices of their European counterparts. In particular, we will discuss and question the themes of patriotism, nationalism, and propaganda that still permeate post-Soviet era artistic practice today. Readings will vary but will typically include text and selections from Amazons of the Avant Garde by Bowlt and Drutt, Modernism and the Spiritual in Russian Art: New Perspectives by Hardiman, and catalogues by Yevgeniya Petrova from the St. Petersburg State Hermitage Museum. Some of the artists we will study in this course will include Natalia Goncharova, Alexander Rodchenko, Kazimir Malevich, Lyobov Popova, and Vladimir Tatlin, among others. We will briefly touch upon European artists of the same period, as reference material to drive discussions around the theme of East versus West.
