In the years of the Russian avant-garde, women artists were as many as their male colleagues, something that is not observed in the European avant-gardes respectively. All the movements of the Russian avant-garde, from Cubofuturism to Constructivism, were represented in the first row by women artists who contributed to the development of new aesthetics that changed the world.
The artworks which are hosted in the exhibition Women artists in the years of the Russian avant-garde (1910-1930), curated by Maria Tsantsanoglou (Director of SMCA), belong to the Costakis collection.
