International - July/August/September 2010
Award-Winning Architect
'zaha hadid and Suprematism'
at Galerie Gmurzynska

JUN 13 - SEP 25, 2010
zaha hadid, Pritzker Prize winning architect, has curated and designed her latest exhibition entitled ‘zaha hadid and Suprematism’ for the famed Galerie Gmurzynska on the historic Paradeplatz in Zurich.

Completely transforming Gmurzynska’s gallery space and juxtaposing her designs with masterpieces of the Russian Avant Garde, Hadid has drawn from her formative inspiration to create a site-specific, transformative design installation in which the exhibition will take place.

Among the masterworks selected by Hadid for the show are pieces by Ilya Chashnik, El Lissitzky, Kasimir Malevich, Alexander Rodchenko and Nikolai Suetin. Together these pieces will show the incredible contemporary contributions zaha hadid has consistently made to the culture of our time, as well as the enduring influence and importance of the Russian Avant Garde. Specific highlights will include some of the last great works of the Russian Avant Garde left in private hands, such as Kasimir Malevich’s oil and canvas, Dissolution of a Plane, from 1917 and Alexander Rodchenko’s Composition No. 99, oil on plywood from 1920.
