TateShots: Piet Mondrian by Tate




TateShots: Piet Mondrian


Co-curator Michael White explores how Mondrian's studio became a way of creating abstract space outside his paintings. Mondrian 'developed the language of abstract painting as we know it today', and this exhibition at Tate Liverpool sets out to show how Mondrian's studios were integral to his way of working. Michael White shows us a meticulous reconstruction of his Paris studio and discusses how Mondrian hoped his paintings and, by extension his studios, would not only create dynamic spatial relationships but even point to a new way of living.
