The Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts will be hosting an exhibition on Russian Modernist Architecture starting October 11 through February 16, 2013. Featuring a wealth of rarely published material on architecture that spanned the empire of the Soviet Union, the 80+ large-scale photographs – documented by British photographer Richard Pare – provide unique insight into the movements of the Soviet revolutionary period. More photos and information after the break.

The exhibition will be located throughout three floors of the Graham Foundation’s Madlener House – located at 4 West Burton Place, Chicago, Illinois. Gallery hours will take place from Wednesday to Saturday 11am to 5pm and entry fees are free. The opening night on October 11, 6-8pm will feature a brief talk by Richard Pare followed by an opening reception.
