Soviet-Era Posters at the Nasher

Machine, Mother, Mannequin: The Good Woman in Soviet Propaganda
An exhibit of Soviet-era propoganda posters from the collections of Duke University Libraries and the Nasher Museum of Art will be on display in the Nasher Museum's Education Corridor March 15 - May 15, 2011.

The exhibit (Machine, Mother, Mannequin: The Good Woman in Soviet Propaganda) illustrates government-prescribed images of Soviet women from the 1917 Revolution to the 1960s. It was curated by Angela Linhardt (M.A. candidate, Slavic and Eurasian Studies) and Professor Beth Holmgren (Slavic and Eurasian Studies). Funds for restoring the posters were provided by the Trent Memorial Foundation.

An OPENING RECEPTION for the exhibit will be held Thursday, March 17, at the Nasher Cafe from 7 to 8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.
