Jack of Diamonds was a pre-constructivist exhibition society founded in Moscow in 1910 by Natalya Goncharova and Mikhail Larionov. Participants in the Jack of Diamonds exhibitions were key avant-garde players that cut the Western domination of the Russian avant-garde and vice versa.
They included Kazimir Malevich, Vladimir Tatlin, Albert Gleizes, Henri Le Fauconnier, André Lhote; Wassily Kandinsky, Alexey von Jawlensky, founding members of the Blaue Reiter; Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, and Max Pechstein; to the French godfathers, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Robert Delaunay, Fernand Léger; to name a few.
These artists represented an amalgamation of the vanguard from Kandinsky’s lyrical abstraction to Tatlin’s visionary pushing of architectural boundaries, and Malevich’s experimentations into the geometric abstraction and the beginnings of Suprematism.
Like these icons of the past, we work with the most cutting-edge artists and exhibition makers of today to tell the stories of how boundary-pushing in 2020 happens through the lens of our docu-shorts.
We dedicate ourselves to pushing the visual culture of today forward. Since media will continue to be an ever-present part of the global narrative, we conceptualized our firm as a resource for galleries and their rosters that can transmit the meeting place between the moving image of the 21st century with the art of the 21st century.
We do so in a compelling package for the gallery-going public and clientele that fits with the most up to date technological trends. When naming our company, we looked to different moments in art history that speak to the zeitgeist of today.
