Tate St Ives Exhibition

Naum Gabo

Naum Gabo. Linear Construction No. 2 1970–1. Tate. The Work of Naum Gabo © Nina & Graham Williams / Tate, 2018

Start the year with a large-scale exhibition of the acclaimed constructivist Naum Gabo

Experience the first extensive presentation of Naum Gabo's sculptures, paintings, drawings and architectural designs to be held in the UK for over 30 years.

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.
