The documentation of Kasimir Malevich’s solo exhibition 0:10, The Last Futurist Exhibition of Pictures in Petrograd, 1915, yielded one of Modernisms iconic images. The black and white photograph shows twenty-one square and rectangular paintings of varying size, hanging on adjacent walls. A chair sits at the base of the right-hand wall, giving an indication of scale. At the top corner of the room, hung so as to form a triangle against the room’s top corner, is Malevich’s Black Square (1915).
