Evening Lecture - Naum Gabo's Sculptures for the Modern World

Professor Christina Lodder, University of Kent

The lecture will look at the innovative sculpture of Naum Gabo, who was inspired by the new scientific realities of the modern world as well as the social and political possibilities of the Russian Revolution of 1917.  He produces constructed works from transparent materials and stringing, which evoke space and time, while communicating his vision of a better and more humane society.

Christina has contributed enormously to western understanding of the development of Russian modernism. She has produced numerous books, articles, reviews, essays for exhibition catalogues, conference papers, and public lectures (in Europe, North America and China). Particular areas of interest include Russian Constructivism and the artists Naum Gabo and Kazimir Malevich.

This Lecture is part of the University's annual Arts & Science Festival.
