The Malevich Society: Call for Grant Applications

Dear Colleagues,

The Malevich Society is pleased to announce its call for 2018 grant applications.

Based in New York, the Malevich Society is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing the knowledge about the Russian artist Kazimir Malevich and his work.

In the belief that Malevich was a pioneer of modern art who should be recognized for his key contributions to the history of Modernism, the Society awards grants to encourage research, writing, and other activities related to his history and memory.

Uyghur script in a 15th-century Russian document

Hi all,

Noticed this fascinating tweet today, and the article it links to in the replies. Apparently this instance of Russian written in Uyghur script (the predecessor to Classical Mongolian and Manchu) in 1436 predates the earliest instances of Russian written in Greek or Latin characters. A nice tidbit for the Eurasianists.
