Rebels with Causes: Soviet Youth Culture, 1917-1991
Opens: December 1, 2017, North Gallery
This exhibition is curated by a Russian studies class, Soviet Youth Cult 1917-1991, taught by Donna Oliver, this year’s George S. Parker II Faculty Curator. The exhibition examines the youth culture—both official and unofficial— that emerged and developed in the Soviet Union over the course of its 74 year existence. It focuses in particular on the state’s attempts under Stalin to
engineer an idealized picture of a happy childhood and socially responsible youth, and on the ways in which an emerging
counterculture in the post-Stalin years worked to undermine that officially constructed portrait. The exhibition will also commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.
