Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 24, 1892
Death: May 3, 1972

She was a Russian avant-garde artist, Futurist and Suprematist, poet and interior decorator. She seems to be the originator of the Mavva, symbol of the World Evil, in poems of Velemir Khlebnikov. In 1914 together with Puni she published the cubo-futurist booklet Roaring Parnas. In 1915 she jointed the Supremus group of avant-garde artists, Liubov Popova, Nadezhda Udaltsova, Varvara Stepanova, Aleksandra Ekster, Ivan Kliun, Nina Genke-Meller, Ivan Puni and others, that was led by the founder of Suprematism Kazimir Malevich. In 1915-1916 with other artists (Suprematists) she worked in the Verbovka Village Folk Centre in the Ukrainian province near Kiev. She was a member of Jack of Diamonds (1919) and Mir iskusstva (1916-1918). In 1919 she and Puni escaped from the Soviets across the ice of the Gulf of Finland. In 1919 to 1923 she lived in Berlin working as a scene designer for cabaret Blue Bird and for Russian Romantic Theater, and she moved to Paris in 1923.
