The destruction, in 1927, of a number of plaster sculptures by Futurist artist Umberto Boccioni represented a great loss for avant-garde art. Now, using a wealth of photographic source material and ground-breaking 3D printing techniques, artists Matt Smith and Anders Råden have recreated three of the artist’s iconic striding figures. This exciting and innovative display enables visitors to ‘see’ these lost masterpieces for the first time.

In 1961, Eric Estorick’s Grosvenor Gallery mounted a show titled Lithographs by 27 Soviet Artists. For the first time after the Revolution, Western viewers were able to see and acquire contemporary art from the USSR which, in contrast to prevailing stereotypes, proved to be brimming with vitality. This display presents the work of a number of artists included in this landmark exhibition.
