SOPHIE TAEUBER-ARP EXHIBITION
Tate Modern, London
July 15 – October 17, 2021

A long-overdue recognition of Taeuber-Arp’s pivotal contribution to modern art and design

Sophie Taeuber-Arp was one of the foremost abstract artists and designers of the 1920s and 30s. Her multidisciplinary work has enduring influence, inspiring innovative artists and designers around the world. One of the most innovative artists and designers of the 20th-century avant-garde, Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889-1943) challenged the borders between abstract art, design, and craft.

Tate Modern‘s major exhibition will be the first in the UK to trace Taeuber-Arp‘s accomplished career as a painter, architect, teacher, writer, and designer of textiles, marionettes, and interiors. Bringing together over 200 objects from collections across Europe and America, the exhibition will show how she blazed a new path for the development of abstraction.

Taeuber-Arp‘s creative output was extraordinarily diverse and at times controversial. She made embroideries and paintings, carved sculptures and edited magazines, created puppets and mysterious Dada objects. She combined traditional crafts with the vocabulary of modernist abstraction, challenging the boundaries separating art and design.

This is the first retrospective of her work ever held in the UK. It brings together Taeuber-Arp‘s principal works from major collections in Europe and the US, most of which have never been seen in this country before. Presented in The Eyal Ofer Galleries. Supported by Tate Members. Organised by Tate Modern, The Museum of Modern Art, and Kunstmuseum Basel.
