Malevich retrospective at Tate Modern until October

Malevich retrospective at Tate Modern until October
23 Jul 2014

Big art shows open in London all the time: After all, the city is full of famous galleries.

One of the most recent high-profile shows to grace the city is 'Malevich', an overview of Kazimir Malevich (1879-1935) which, organisers promise, provides a look at the whole of his career, using work from the best collections of the artist's pieces globally.

The public have been able to take-in this modern art event at Tate Modern since July 16th, and it's going to be there all summer long and into the autumn. The final day of the show is planned for October 26th this year.

It displays over 150 paper works that aren't often seen in public, pieces that students and colleagues of the artist created and in excess of 150 of Malevich's own major works.

These include architectural models, Suprematist paintings and some of the pieces he created later in his life, which are not so well known.

Art lovers can see the show, the first in close to 25 years to be a major retrospective on Malevich, between 10am and 6pm most days, and 10am and 10pm Friday to Saturday.

The exhibition begins with early work depicting things like landscapes in Russia and religious imagery. Then visitors follow on towards Malevich's abstract work.

They'll find out about the artist's work in theatre and architecture, too, and the way he abandoned painting for some time, a time in which he wrote and taught.

Among the other things you can see at Tate Modern at the moment is Henri Matisse: The Cut Outs, on show until September 7th. This looks at Matisse's cut out paper works, displaying some 130 pieces.

Meanwhile, one of the current attractions at Tate Britain, also in London, is the show British Folk Art, on display until August 31st this year.ADNFCR-408-ID-801737269-ADNFCR
