The All-Union Printing Exhibition was opened on September 15, 1927 in Moscow on Krymsky Val, on the territory of the All-Union Agricultural Exhibition in the Main House. The design of the exhibition was carried out by El Lisitsky, who in the 1920s and 1930s took part in many exhibition projects, approving new principles of the exposition. Lisitsky, in fact, invented exhibition design as a new kind of artistic activity, and his experiments on the design of the exhibition space became the prototype of Western museums of modern art.
