From now until February 15, 2015, the Palazzo Chiablese in Turin will host the exhibition "AVANGUARDIA RUSSA: da Malevich a Rodchenko, Capolavori della Collezione Costakis."
The famed collector George Costakis defied Russia's ideological climate at the time he began to acquire Soviet avant-garde art. Today, his collection includes many of the most important pieces of Russian art from the early 20th century. These works provide an important perspective on Russian history and society as seen through the eyes of the young artists at that time.
The UniCredit Art Collection, one of the most important corporate collections in Europe, is comprised of roughly 60,000 works from the repositories of the various banks that merged to form our Group. In keeping with the traditions of our predecessors, we continue to believe strongly in the importance of supporting culture and artistic initiatives that reach a wide audience. Culture is a driver of sustainable social development and healthy communities, and our art collection reflects both UniCredit's international identity and the local and regional character of our Group.
That is why we are proud to sponsor the AVANGUARDIA RUSSA exhibition, which promises to provide new perspectives on Russia and its past.
