2014 highlights also include UK's largest solo show of work by Indian artist Nasreen Mohamed
A LIFESIZE reconstruction of Dutch painter Piet Mondrian's Paris studio will be a highlight of Tate Liverpool's summer exhibition next year.
Meanwhile, the UK's largest solo show of work by Indian artist Nasreen Mohamedi will run alongside the Mondrian exhibition.
Details of the Albert Dock gallery's 2014 programme were revealed at a press conference at Tate Modern in London this morning.
The year will also include Keywords, showcasing 1980s British art linked to a series of individual words, and an exhibition for the Liverpool Biennial contemporary art festival.
Francesco Manacorda, artistic director, Tate Liverpool said: “I’m extremely proud of the programme we have announced and I’m confident that 2014 will be a fantastic year for Tate Liverpool. The exhibitions are very diverse and explore a range of topics that will inspire the public.”
Mohamedi (1937-1990) is considered to be one of the most significant modernist artists.
Born in Karachi and raised in Mumbai, she studied art in London and worked in an Parisian atelier in Paris before returning to Mumbai where she mixed with abstractionist artists.
She moved to Baroda in the early 1970s, where she taught Fine Art till her death, and developed she distinctive abstract style, producing smallscale ink and graphite drawings.
The exhibition will open in June on the same day as the already announced Mondrian and his Studios: Abstraction into the World, which commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Dutch painter's death.
The summer show will aim to provide new insights into the artist’s practice and his relationship with architecture and urbanism, and will present a diverse group of key abstract paintings.
Keywords: Art, Culture and Society in 1980s Britain, which opens in February, is based on Raymond Williams’ study of the vocabulary of culture and society.
The exhibition will span 20 years from the first publication of his book, Keywords, in 1976, through the period of Conservative rule.
Featuring work by artists including Sonia Boyce, Helen Chadwick and Anish Kapoor, it will have particular focus on British art of the 1980s and will examine the decade’s significance in the nation's history.
