London Exhibitions. Sonia Delaunay: Queen Of The Avant-Garde At The Tate Gallery. Tate Modern: Exhibition. 15 April – 9 August 2015. The Eyal Ofer Galleries, Level 3. London UK.
“For me there is no gap between my painting and my so-called ‘decorative’ work. I never considered the ‘minor arts’ to be artistically frustrating; on the contrary, it was an extension of my art.” Sonia Delaunay.
Throughout the early twentieth century, Sonia Delaunay celebrated the modern world of movement, technology and urban life through vibrant abstract works such as Electric Prisms 1913 (above).
This will be the first UK retrospective to assess the breadth of her artistic practice. It will feature the groundbreaking paintings, textiles and clothes she made, as well as her innovative collaborations with poets, choreographers and manufacturers, from Diaghilev to Liberty.
“Delaunay is one of the crucial reference points in modern art and design.” VOGUE.
“The first UK retrospective of her work brings Delaunay’s vibrant visions flooding into the light.” The Guardian.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
“Who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.” Sonia Delaunay.
