Inventing Abstraction 1910 - 1925
"Beginning in late 1911 and across the course of the next year, a series of artists including Vasily Kandinsky, Fernard Léger, Robert Delaunay, František Kupka, and Francis Picabia exhibited works that marked the beginning of something radically new: they dispensed with recognizable subject matter. The implications of these opening moves were registered with astonishing rapidity: within five years, abstraction's practitioners could be counted in the dozens, and worked in cities across Eastern and Western Europe and in the United States. This exhibition examines key episodes in abstraction's inaugural years, exploring it as both a historical idea and an emergent artistic practice.

Inventing Abstraction examines the productive relationships among artists and composers, dancers and poets, in establishing a new modern language for the arts. It brings together a wide range of art forms—paintings, drawings, printed matter, books, sculpture, film, photography, sound, music, and dance—to draw a rich portrait of this watershed moment in which art was wholly reinvented."
