Private tour of MOMA's 'A Revolutionary Impulse' with curators Roxana Marcoci and Sarah Suzuki
Friends of The Joseph Brodsky Fund attended a private after-hours tour of the “A Revolutionary Impulse: The Rise of the Russian Avant-Garde” exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art. Our hosts for the evening were exhibition curators Roxana Marcoci and Sarah Suzuki.
Roxana Marcoci is a Senior Curator in MoMA’s Department of Photography. In her seventeen years with MoMA she organized a number of exibits accompanied by extensive publications. She also chairs the Central and Eastern European group of MoMA’s Contemporary and Modern Art Perspectives in a Global World. She has written extensively on postwar and contemporary art, and is a contributor to Aperture, Art in America, Art Journal, and Mousse, among other journals.
Sarah Suzuki is a curator in the Department of Drawings and Prints. At MoMA, Ms. Suzuki’s exhibitions include “Soldier, Spectre, Shaman: The Figure and the Second World War (2015-16)”; “Jean Dubuffet: Soul of the Underground (2014-15)”; “The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters (2014-15),” and many others. Among her publications are 2012’s What is a Print?, as well as contributions to numerous books, catalogues, and journals.
As a non-profit dedicated to supporting free artistic expression for Russian poets and artists, we were thrilled to see Russian poetry on prominent display as an integral part of the revolutionary avant-garde movement.
We would like to thank all of our patrons who came to support us at this event. We also thank the amazing staff of the MOMA who provided us with this opportunity.
