Tate Britain, 08/01/21 - 08/01/21
Exhibition: Frank Bowling
Frank Bowling’s first major retrospective celebrates an artist who constantly pushes the possibilities of paint. This exhibition offers a chance to experience the entirety of Bowling’s 60-year career. It showcases his sensual use of colour and bold experimentation.
The exhibition brings together a lifetime of large-scale artworks. It includes key series such as the iconic ‘map paintings’, the visually arresting ‘poured paintings’ made by pouring paint down an inclined surface, and the sculptural paintings of the 1980s evoking riverbeds, all the way to mature work selected from a recent period of explosive productivity. A conference coinciding with the exhibition will take place on June 1 in the Tate Modern galleries.
