Currently on view at the Art Institute of Chicago is a show called “Windows on the War: Soviet TASS Posters at Home and Abroad, 1941-1945.” The exhibition features over 150 posters from the early 1940s that were designed and distributed by the TASS News Agency. See the New York Times review of the exhibition.
Most of the posters in the exhibition belong to the Ne Boltai! Collection of Soviet Propaganda which is based in Prague. The Russian name of the collection translates to "Don't chatter." In the upcoming months, parts of the collections are being displayed at various exhibitions around Chicago as part of the Soviet Arts Experience festival.
Malcolm Grear Designers designed the visual identity and the website for the Ne Boltai Collection. The website includesnearly forty thousand objects.
A few years ago, Brown University's David Winton Bell Gallery exhibited work from the Ne Boltai collection in a show titled "Views and Re-Views: Soviet Political Posters and Cartoons." The show exhibited about 150 pieces from the time period of the Russian Civil War beginning in 1918 up to the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.
The studio created the exhibition identity and unique “look” of the exhibition, including: the invitation, brochure, website, exhibition signs and design.
