York Art Historian Involved In New Exhibition At Tate Liverpool

Uni of York 300414

10:31am 2nd June 2014

Studios with Tate Liverpools Artistic Director, Francesco Manacorda. Commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Dutch painters death, it runs from 6th June to 5th October 2014.

Providing fresh insight into Mondrians practice, the exhibition will explore his relationship with architecture and urbanism, and his contribution to the development of modern thought.

The exhibition will present the largest number of Neo-Plastic paintings by Mondrian ever assembled in the UK, with some never before seen in this country. It will also feature a life size reconstruction of his Paris studio that will allow visitors to experience a replica of the unique environment the artist created.

Dr White said: "Mondrian's visitors frequently described his studio as an almost other-worldly place that produced an aesthetic experience in its own right. This exhibition, which features the largest gathering of Mondrian's rare and precious abstract paintings seen in the UK, is the first to explore connections between the abstraction of his paintings and the physical environment in which they were made and displayed by the artist. It provides a unique insight into how Mondrian manipulated his studio space and used it to communicate the utopian aspirations he held for his art."

Tate Liverpool is also working with partner Turner Contemporary, based in Margate, who will present the exhibition Mondrian and Colour from 24 May to  21 September. Mondrian and Colour explores the early period of the artists career, tracing the painters use of colour from figuration to early abstraction. Together the exhibitions will focus the UKs attention on this pioneer of abstract art.

Dr White will conduct a Curators Talk for members on Thursday 5th June, and will also speak on Mondrian: A Different Kind of Order at the York Festival of Ideas at 6pm on 16 June.
