Sonia Delaunay was a ground-breaking figure in the development of abstraction and modernism in the first decades of the 20th century. Always keen to experiment with medium, colour and technique, her work over eight decades ranged from painting to poetry, textiles and design. Everything around her was to be lived with. Throughout her long, enterprising and creative career she fused radical avant-garde practice with designing textiles or products to make a living.
Griselda Pollock, Tag Gronberg, Jane Rapley, Cecile Godefroy and chair Anne Montfort discuss Delaunay's fusion of art and everyday life and critically examine what that means today.
