Painting into Sculpture—Embodiment in Form
This event has ended.
Is it an unusual thing for painters to create sculpture as well? In the 20th century, avant-garde artists undertook new experiments with form in their paintings and then tried to give three-dimensional form to them. Why was it that they then went beyond the new freedom they had found in painting to trade their brushes for tools and chose new materials to enter the world of gravity and create sculptures? What is the connection between their paintings and the sculptures they created? This exhibition presents a selection of sculptures by avant-garde artists of the 20th century that emerged from their paintings. By showing their paintings along with their subsequent sculptures, the show aims to reveal their artistic intentions in a new light.
