INTO THE LIGHT: PHOTOGRAPHY AND ABSTRACT ART

Untitled 1952 Guy Bourdin 1928-1991 Purchased with funds provided by the Photography Acquisitions Committee 2015 http://www.tate.org.uk/art/work/P81208

Date(s): May 3, 2018 – Sep 16, 2018
Location: Tate Modern, Tate Modern, London, United Kingdom

The birth of abstract art and the invention of photography were both defining moments in modern visual culture, but these two stories are often told separately. Into the Light is the first major exhibition to explore the relationship between the two, spanning the century from the 1910s to the present day. It brings to life the innovation and originality of photographers over this period, and shows how they responded and contributed to the development of abstraction. Key vintage prints are brought together from pioneers like Paul Strand, László Moholy-Nagy and Man Ray, as well as lesser-known experimental works and those of contemporary artists such as Barbara Kasten and Thomas Ruff. Their work is shown alongside abstract paintings, sculptures and installations by major figures in abstract art, from Georges Braque and Jackson Pollock to Carl Andre and Bridget Riley.
