The exhibit will aid viewers to understand the methodology and philosophy in the use of propaganda during the Cold War. The exhibited materials illustrate the Soviet governments intent to develop and image of success, strength of the Party, strength of the Party, developments in industry, rise in production and new government policies.
The exhibition will acquaint the community with the global spectrum of human artistic, cultural and scientific expression; and will enable visitors to create, learn and participate in the gallery’s educational programs.
The exhibit portrays how in times of political revolution art has been a decisive means to document and promote a specific ideology. The exhibit is a traveling exhibition previously exhibited in the Snite Museum at Notre Dame University curated from the stance of poetics. Past exhibitions such as “Images from the Atomic Front” have been acclaimed in the community as educational and pragmatic representations of art.
