Van Doesburg and the International Avant-Garde

  • Comment

This week Tate Modern will be opening its doors to the radical and multi-disciplinary artist Theo van Doesburg

Van Doesburg and the International Avant-Garde: Constructing a New World is the first major exhibition in the UK devoted to the Dutch artist. The exhibition displays a wide range of van Doesburg’s work including a series of remarkable semi-figurative paintings, his work on the prolific magazine and eventual art movement De Stijl (1917), and a display of his stain glass and experimental movie shorts.

In addition to van Doesburg’s productions the exhibition also explores the importance of his interdisciplinary practice and collaborations with other artists and architects such as constructivist Piet Mondrian. This includes model reconstructions and interior designs for the Café Aubette’s cinema-dance hall in Strasbourg, which he completed in collaboration with Sophie Taeuber and Hans Arp.
