More Than a Black Square: the Art of Kazimir Malevich: talk by Robert Chandler

Come and hear Robert Chandler talk about the paintings of Kazimir Malevich, one of the boldest innovators in twentieth-century art, either before or after you get to the great exhibition at Tate Modern. Malevich is known, above all, for his “Black Square” (1915) and the brilliantly coloured geometric paintings he termed Suprematist.  We now have the chance to see in this illustrated talk, to open the new Pushkin Club season, that he created equally great work in many other styles.
