On the occasion of the 120th birthday of Aleksandr Rodchenko, the great Russian artist, graphic designer and photographer, 20 of the best current Russian poster artists got together in a project Rodchenko 120 to design a poster in his memory. The posters were shown in an exhibition in Moscow as part of "Moscow Design Week" and are all in Sergei Serov's blog on "Livejournal". As Serov writes "The posters are not only a tribute to the great artist, but a reflection on the historical destiny of graphic design".

Suggested by faculty member Christopher Vice, this exhibition will bring part of this collection to our galleries.
