V-A-C Foundation is proud to present Space Force Construction, organised in collaboration with the Art Institute of Chicago, for the launch of V-A-C’s new Venetian headquarters. Space Force Construction considers the legacy of early Soviet art and its spaces of display. The exhibition brings together more than 100 works from the 1920s and ‘30s along with major reconstructions of spaces, sculptures and functional objects by key Soviet artists such as El Lissitzky, Gustav Klutsis, Aleksandr Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova. These recreations and historical art works are brought into dialogue with new commissions and recent works by contemporary visual and performing artists. David Musgrave will present a new sculptural work Repaired figure.
