Futurism's Ground-breaking Exhibition at the Tate Modern

Tate Modern celebrates this dramatic art movement with a ground-breaking exhibition. Futurism was launched by the Italian poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in 1909 with the publication of the Manifesto of Futurism on the front page of Paris newspaper Le Figaro. The Futurists created a new style that broke with old traditions and expressed the energy and movement of their modern life. This exhibition both showcases the work of key Futurists and explores art movements reacting to Futurism. Highlights include one of our favorites, Boccioni's dynamic bronze Unique Forms of Continuity in Space 1913 (See above) as well as major works by artists such as Braque, Malevich and Duchamp.

This exhibit will be on display June 12th-September 20th at the Tate Modern, London.
