First major Malevich retrospective for almost twenty-five years opens at Tate Modern

LONDON.- Kazimir Malevich (1878–1935) was a radical, mysterious and hugely influential figure in modern art, who lived and worked through one of the most turbulent periods in twentieth century history. Tate Modern presents the first major Malevich retrospective for almost twenty-five years. This groundbreaking exhibition draws on the world’s greatest collections of his work to offer an expansive view of his career in its entirety.

Having come of age in Tsarist Russia, Malevich witnessed the October Revolution first-hand. His early experiments as a painter led him towards the cataclysmic invention of Suprematism, a bold visual language of abstract geometric shapes and stark colours, epitomised by the Black Square. A definitively radical gesture, it was revealed to the world after months of secrecy and was hidden again for almost half a century after its creator’s death. It sits on a par with Duchamp’s ‘readymade’ as a game-changing moment in twentieth century art and continues to inspire and confound viewers to this day.

Starting from his early paintings of Russian landscapes, agricultural workers and religious scenes, visitors can see Malevich’s journey towards abstract painting and his iconic Suprematist compositions, including almost all the surviving paintings from the legendary 0.10 exhibition. The show explores his collaborative involvement with architecture and theatre, including his designs for the avant-garde opera Victory over the Sun. The exhibition also follows his temporary abandonment of painting in favour of teaching and writing, and his much-debated return to figurative painting in later life.

Malevich’s work tells a fascinating story about the dream of a new social order, the successes and pitfalls of revolutionary ideals, and the power of art itself. This exhibition, for the first time, offers visitors a chance to trace his groundbreaking developments not only through well-known masterpieces but also through earlier and later work, sculpture, design objects, and rarely-seen prints and drawings.

Tate Modern’s exhibition is made possible by a unique collaboration between the Stedelijk Museum and Khardzhiev Foundation in Amsterdam and the Costakis Collection in Thessaloniki, enriched with key loans from public and private collections around the world, including the State Russian Museum, St Petersburg; State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow; MoMA, New York; and the Centre Pompidou, Paris. It also brings together the largest number of Malevich’s works on paper ever to be displayed. Unprecedented in scope, the exhibition sheds new light on his career, from his participation in the quest for a new society to his confrontation with the Stalinist regime.

Malevich is curated at Tate Modern by Achim Borchardt-Hume, Head of Exhibitions and Iria Candela, Curator, International Art, with Fiontan Moran, Assistant Curator. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue from Tate Publishing and a programme of talks and events in the gallery. It is organised by Tate Modern in collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany, Bonn, with each venue presenting different aspects of Malevich’s remarkable career from October 2013 to October 2014.
