Futurism at the Tate Modern



Marking 100 years since the birth of this revolutionary art movement, the Tate Modern is celebrating with an exhibition on Futurism from 12 June to 20 September. Founded by the Italian poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in 1909 with the publication of the Futurist Manifesto, Futurism built upon the revolutionary art practices that Cubism started and commentated more on the advent of machinery, technology and speed that punctuated modern life.

This new London exhibition examines the work of Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni and Gino Severini and explores the reaction of the art world to Futurism and also the movements that followed and drew upon the techniques of the Futurist movement. Some highlights of the exhibition include Boccioni's dynamic bronze sculpture 'Unique Forms of Continuity in Space' (1913) and Picasso's 'Head of a Woman (Fernande)' (1909) as well as major works by Braque and Duchamp.

The Tate Modern is a top London attraction and can be accessed easily by the tube and from our Tower Bridge serviced apartments.
