Installation view of 0.10 (Zero-Ten) The Last Futurist Exhibition of Painting.

The landmark exhibition 0.10 (Zero–Ten) The Last Futurist Exhibition of Painting was held from December 19, 1915 to January 17, 1916 in Petrograd, Russia (now St. Petersburg). The exhibition presented new modes of abstraction—including the breakthrough display of Suprematist works by Kazimir Malevich—which did away with any reference to the recognizable physical world. The title 0.10 refers to the intended goal of the exhibition to present ten artists seeking the essential core the —"zero"—of painting. In the end, fourteen artists exhibited but the title remained the same. Here are images and ephemeral materials related to this revolutionary exhibition.
