One of the most interesting exhibitions being held at the moment is the one devoted to the 75th anniversary of the 'museification' of Mayakovsky. Although not in the same premises for 75 years it was in that fatal year of 1937 that a Mayakovsky museum and library were to be opened. While the Mayakovsky Museum itself is not hosting any special exhibition, the Proun Gallery at the Vinzavod Complex (a Gallery noted for its attention to exhibiting the Soviet avant-garde) is showing the graphic art works held by the Mayakovsky Museum (but rarely publicly exhibited). The graphic works of El Lisitsky, Rodchenko, Sen'kin and Klutsis are being put on display here until the 8th May. Quite a treat for anyone interested in the photomontages of these great artists.
