Tate Modern to revamp galleries

QUICK TAKES

October 01, 2005|From Associated Press

Tate Modern, the rousingly successful London art gallery in a converted power plant, plans to rehang its collection next spring for the first time since it opened five years ago.

The four main exhibits will revolve around the themes of Cubism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism, replacing the current divisions of landscape, still-life, history and nude works.

Each theme, or moment in modern art history, will feature a pair of artists from different generations to serve as a "springboard which looks both back and focuses on the roots of those moments in the 20th century and looks forward," museum director Nicholas Serota said.

The pairings will be Martin Creed with Carl Andre, Roy Lichtenstein with Umberto Boccioni, Anish Kapoor with Barnett Newman and Jannis Kounellis with Giorgio de Chirico.
