GRAD and Kino Klassika Foundation are delighted to present Unexpected Eisenstein, an exhibition that sheds new light on the life and achievements of pioneering Soviet film filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein.

Hailed as one of the greatest directors of the twentieth century, Sergei Eisenstein is best known for his iconic and revolutionary films, from The Battleship Potemkin to Alexander Nevsky and Ivan the Terrible.

This immersive new exhibition is curated by world-renowned Eisenstein authority and film historian Ian Christie, co-editor of Eisenstein Rediscovered, and Elena Sudakova, GRAD Director and Principal Curator. The exhibition invites audiences to consider Eisenstein beyond his cinematic achievements and for the first time explores his significant yet often overlooked relationship with England. It brings together nearly seventy sketches, designs and printed materials from the Bakhrushin State Theatre Museum and Russian State Archive of Literature and Art (RGALI). Unexpected Eisenstein offers a rare opportunity to see this varied and often surprising collection of work.
