Tate St Ives has re-opened with a continuation of the UK’s first large-scale exhibition of Naum Gabo (1890-1977) in more than 30 years, marking the centenary of his Realistic Manifesto, a seminal proclamation of the modernist era.
This is a rare opportunity to see the full scope of Gabo’s experimental work in sculpture, painting, drawing, and architectural projects. The exhibition offers a fresh perspective on his groundbreaking practice and reveals how this visionary of his era
became fundamental to developments in 20th century art.
Later in the year (from 24th October to 3rd May) Tate St Ives will stage the UK’s largest exhibition to date by celebrated South Korean artist Haegue Yang (b 1971).
Renowned for creating immersive environments from a diverse range of materials, Yang’s sculptures and installations often use industrially made objects, interwoven with labour-intensive and craft-based processes. These processes reflect pagan
cultures and their deep connection with various seasonal rituals in relation to natural phenomena.
Anne Barlow, the director of Tate St Ives, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming back our local communities and our visitors to Tate St Ives. As well as the collection displays and the highly acclaimed Naum Gabo exhibition, we will also reopen the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, located a short walk from the gallery.
“Visitors will be able to book tickets online for both sites together, which makes for a fantastic immersion into the local, national, and international significance of this artistic community.”
