|From Thaw to Meltdown: Soviet Painting of the 1950s-1980s
Tracing the profound and lasting transformations in society that took place after Stalin’s death in 1953, this presentation describes the gradual relaxation of the tight ideological restrictions previously imposed by the Communist Party on the minds of Soviet citizens. Many Soviet artists began claiming the right to develop approved worker themes as they saw fit. Serving as an introduction to tours of the exhibit, “From Thaw to Meltdown” presents a multifaceted picture of Soviet life as it was experienced by common laborers.
