A large-scale exhibition of the acclaimed constructivist Naum Gabo

This one-way route through Tate St Ives guides you through the gallery, with breathtaking views out to Porthmeor beach. You will have the opportunity to see the Modern Art and St Ives displays alongside the Naum Gabo: Constructions for Real Life exhibition.

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, the exhibition focuses on key themes in his work.
