Abstract

Held at Sainsbury Centre, Norwich (02/10/2021 - 17/07/2022) Drawn from the Sainsbury Centre collection, Rhythm and Geometry: Constructivist art in Britain since 1951, celebrates the abstract and constructed art made and exhibited in Britain since 1951 and comprises of c.120 objects across sculpture, reliefs, mobiles, painting, drawing and printmaking. Rhythm and Geometry: Constructivist art in Britain since 1951 examines the rise of this dramatic strand in post-war British art led by the example of Victor Pasmore, who famously converted to abstract art in the late 1940s. Opening with a selection of significant reliefs, the exhibition looks at the transition into abstraction that occurred at this time. Process-based artworks will demonstrate their mathematical or scientific foundations, before charting the development into participatory or kinetic art forms. Exploring the emotive and optical effects of colour and pattern, the exhibition ends with work in the form of geometric abstraction. Artists include Robert Adams, Yaacov Agam, Rana Begum, Anthony Caro, Lygia Clark, Natalie Dower, Adrian Heath, Anthony Hill, Michael Kidner, Kenneth Martin, Mary Martin, François Morellet, Victor Pasmore, Jean Spencer, Takis, Mary Webb, Stephen Willats, Victor Vasarely, Gillian Wise and Li Yuan-Chia.
