deconstructing genius.

ZAHA HADID (...) x 'Supermatism' (...)

'Galerie Gmurzynska' in Zurich, an exhibition designed & curated by Zaha Hadid herself.
The entire exhibition is of Zaha Hadid's works alongside early 20th century Russian art.

The exhibit showcases this Pritzker Prize winning architect's love for Russian
Avant-Garde art; drawing similarities between the bodies of work.

Striking and contrasting explosions of graphics in the entrance space. Something that probably would look bad in a rendering but fantastic in person/photograph.

There's something about bold graphics in an interior space that
makes it scream "BAM" and fresh.
The undeniable links between Suprematist artists and Hadid are present through her entire
career starting with her very own grad project in makes me laugh when people look at this and imagine it to be art works of the
current day, how it looks sci-fi and all when really this kinda art and funk has been
around for the past 100. & if u wondered if these "blobs" were just "blobs" they're really not, they all had real social and political meaning/substance.
