Pioneering Photographer Claude Cahun
The Modern Lens: International Photography and the Tate collection
Tate St Ives: Exhibition
14 October 2014 – 10 May 2015
‘Pioneering artists from across Europe, the Americas and Japan will be shown at Tate St Ives for the first time in The Modern Lens. This will be the largest display of photographic works ever to be exhibited at the gallery.’ – Tate St Ives.
‘We sometimes think of abstraction and surrealism as opposing forces: the universal language of abstraction versus the personal language of surrealism, which was inspired by the unconscious. But this section of The Modern Lens suggests how these two currents sometimes converged in depictions of the landscape.
Claude Cahun in particular offers a really interesting point of connection in terms of landscape conflating abstraction and surrealism.’ – Tate.
