SHAPE OF LIGHT: 100 YEARS OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND ABSTRACT ART
May 2 - Oct 14, 2018
The birth of abstract art and the invention of photography were both defining moments in modern visual culture, but these two stories are often told separately.
 
Shape of Light is the first major exhibition to explore the relationship between the two, spanning the century from the 1910s to the present day. It brings to life the innovation and originality of photographers over this period, and shows how they responded and contributed to the development of abstraction.
 
Key photographs are brought together from pioneers including Man Ray and Alfred Stieglitz, major contemporary artists such as Barbara Kasten and Thomas Ruff, right up to exciting new work by Antony Cairns, Maya Rochat and Daisuke Yokota, made especially for the exhibition.
