Magdalena Abakanowicz at the Tate Modern
From now until Sunday 21st May 2023 The Tate Modern is hosting an exhibition by artist Magdalena Abakanowicz titled Every tangle of thread and rope.
Going back to the 1960’s and 70’s the Polish artist was known for birthing extreme works of art from woven fibre. The abstract and organic towering works hung from the ceiling and in fact pioneered a new form of art installation, these would come to be known as Abakans as an homage to her.
Most of the crucial and significant Abakans have been brought together to hang in a jungle like display in the Blavatnik Building in the Tate Modern, the building is a 64-metre long gallery space perfect for the exhibition. The display presents a very rare opportunity to delve into this spectacular body of work.
The art exhibition at Tate Modern explores this transformative period of Magdalena Abakanowicz’s practice when her woven forms came off the wall and into three-dimensional space. With these works she brought soft, fibrous forms into a new relationship with sculpture. A selection of early textile pieces and her little-known drawings are also on show.
The exhibition is running until Sunday 21st May 2023 in the Blavatnik Building in the Tate Modern, it is free entry for members and £16 for non-members. Advance booking is recommended and concessions are available. The exhibition is also open until 10pm for Tate Modern Lates session times.
