Tent. New York, The Museum of Modern Art, 23-12-2012, 15-04-2013. - Groepstentoonstelling onderzoekt ontstaan en ontwikkeling van de abstracte kunst in de periode 1910-1925. - Coll. VAM: Leck, Bart, Compositie, 1918, p. 242 ill. kleur . - In 1912, in several European cities, a handful of artists - Vasily Kandinsky, Frantisek Kupka, Francis Picabia and Robert Delaunay - presented the first abstract pictures to the public. Inventing Abstraction, published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, celebrates the centennial of this bold new type of artwork. It traces the development of abstraction as it moved through a network of modern artists, from Marsden Hartley and Marcel Duchamp to Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich, sweeping across nations and across media. This richly illustrated publication covers a wide range of artistic production, including paintings, drawings, books, sculptures, film, photography, sound poetry, atonal music and non-narrative dance, to draw a crossmedia portrait of these watershed years.
