Naum Gabo

Tate St Ives

25 Jan - 3 May 2020

A century after Gabo and his brother Antoine Pevsner set out the principles of constructivism in his Realistic Manifesto, this show presents the development of Gabo’s ideas from early kinetic sculptures to large-scale public works of the 1950s and later ‘linear constructions’, as well as his stage designs for the Ballets Russes. Find out more from the Tate’s website.
