New exhibitions opening
Naum Gabo, Tate St Ives (25 Jan – 3 May 2020)
The first extensive presentation of Naum Gabo‘s sculptures, paintings, drawings and architectural designs to be held in the UK for over 30 years opens at the Tate St Ives.
The exhibition marks the centenary of the Realistic Manifesto 1920, a set of pioneering artistic principles launched in Moscow by Gabo and his brother Antoine Pevsner. The statement declared that authentically modern art should engage with and reflect the modern age.
Drawing primarily on the complementary collections of Gabo’s work held at Tate and the Berlinische Galerie in Berlin, Germany, it will focus on key themes in his work.
A Sharp Pencil, Falmouth Art Gallery (25 Jan – 21 March 2020)
The super sharp pencil used by Falmouth-based artist Patrick Woodroffe is the inspiration behind this celebration of all forms of drawing. Patrick’s highly detailed drawings will be displayed alongside those by his friend, Peter Markey, who shared Patrick’s quirky sense of humour but developed his own distinctive drawing style. These works will be displayed alongside pencil masterpieces drawn from Falmouth’s collection and loaned by contemporary artists.
