radical graphics


Revolutionary Film Posters: Aesthetic Experiments of Russian Constructivism, 1920-33  
Tony Shafrazi Gallery, 544 West 26th Street through July 29, 2011.

Ninety-five stunning posters (some literally jaw-dropping in person) alongside restored footage from “The Man With a Movie Camera” (1929), and Eisenstein’s
“Battleship Potemkin” (1925) and “October” (1928). 
Tell me, have you seen any film advertising collateral in the last decade
that approaches these?

I may have to go again.

Fabulous Graphics. Thanks for posting - and absolutely, I agree with the sentiment on the films that accompanied these fabulous images.

Movie graphics in the last, ok, I'm going to say 30 years, have been abysmal. (Do you remember the youtube video about Trajan: The Movie Font?)Just like women's magazine covers. Two areas driven by marketing...
