WASHINGTON, DC.- The Phillips Collection presents El Lissitzky: Futurist Portfolios, on view through January 21, 2007. Nineteen prints by Russian artist El Lissitzky comprising two complete lithographic portfolios will be shown in conjunction with the Société Anonyme exhibition. Lissitzky (1890–1941), also an architect and theorist, created the Victory over the Sun portfolio as designs for a futurist opera, and the Proun portfolio ("Proun" is the Latin acronym for "design for the confirmation of the new") to embrace utopian ideals through the use of abstract architectural forms. A gallery will be designed as a Proun room to convey some of Lissitzky's concepts in three dimensions.
