Exhibition - 'Modern Art and St Ives'

For the first time, Tate will be able to dedicate spaces to exploring the history of modern art in St Ives, giving key artists a permanent presence in the town where they lived and worked. This new display will follow those artists across the 20th century, revealing their relationships to international art histories. From the unique perspective of St Ives, visitors will be able to bridge geographical and chronological boundaries and discover new connections through familiar artists.

National and international figures relating to the practice of modern British art in the town will be covered in depth – from Ben Nicholson, Peter Lanyon and Barbara Hepworth to Piet Mondrian, Naum Gabo and Paule Vezelay.  Their links to the wider story of British art will also be revealed, such as the work of Keith Vaughan who joined Patrick Heron's Space in Colour exhibition in the early 1950s and later came to St. Ives.
