Mondrian exhibition at Turner Contemporary

Date Posted: 28/12/2013

The Turner Contemporary in Kent hosts a major exhibition next summer considering the significance of colour during Piet Mondrian’s early career.

Mondrian and Colour runs from 25th May to 21st September, and will aim to explore Mondrian’s practice; tracing the painter’s use of colour from figuration to early abstraction.

Bringing together around 40 paintings by the artist and other collections in Europe and the USA, the exhibition will demonstrate how Mondrian’s abstract works expressed his search for a new universal harmony.

Turner Contemporary is also working in partnership with Tate Liverpool, which will present the concurrent exhibition Mondrian and his Studios: Abstraction into the World from 6th June until 5th October 2014.

Mondrian and his Studios will explore the artist's importance in the field of abstraction and his relationship with architecture and urbanism.
