Victor Pasmore: Line & Space
April 12 - June 06, 2021
Marlborough Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition Victor Pasmore: Line & Space. The artist's pioneering development of abstract art is considered to be one of the most significant achievements in 20th century British art. The show explores Pasmore's incredibly versatile output over his long career.
Pasmore holds a unique place in the canon of British art. His work reflects and anticipates the changes that occurred in art and art practice throughout the twentieth century. A career that evolved from the lyrical landscapes of the young artist through the development of a new, pure abstraction to experiments with constructivist sculpture, spray painting, collage and Perspex, and involvement with the planning of Peterlee New Town, made Pasmore one of the foremost exponents and theorists of abstract art. His work, in all its diversity, remains challenging and relevant today.
The exhibition is also accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue featuring a foreword by Elizabeth Gilmore, Director of Hastings Contemporary, and text by Chris Stephens, Director of the Holbourne Museum, Bath.
The gallery will be open with extended hours during London Gallery Weekend.
Friday 4 June: 10am - 8pm
Saturday 5 June: 10am - 6pm
Sunday 6 June: 11am - 5pm
Please note that the gallery will be closed on bank holiday, Monday 31 May.
