Event: Paul Klee: Making Visible
Location: Tate Modern, SE1
The Tate Modern’s major show opening in the autumn celebrates one of the great artists of European modernism in Paul Klee: Making Visible. Klee was a teacher at the Bauhaus and a member of the radical art movement the Blue Rider before being denounced by the Nazis and returning to Switzerland.
The exhibition focuses on 30 years of the Swiss artist’s life, during and between the two world wars. It looks at the three major stages in Klee’s career starting in Munich where he studied painting in the 1910s to his breakthroughs during the First World War; his years teaching at the Bauhaus in the 1920s; and his return to Switzerland and the end of his life in 1940.
The Tate has collected drawings, watercolours and paintings from collections around the world for the exhibition.
Paul Klee at the Tate Modern Gallery on Bankside runs from 16 Oct 2013 to 9 Mar 2014, open Sun to Thur 10am to 6pm, and Fri & Sat 10am to 10pm.
