Hilma af Klint @ The Serpentine Gallery

3 March 2016 - 15 May 2016

An exhibition of the work of Swedish painter Hilma af Klint (1862–1944), who is now regarded as a pioneer of abstract art. While her paintings were not seen publicly until 1986, her work from the early 20th century pre-dates the first purely abstract paintings by Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich. This Serpentine exhibition Painting the Unseen focuses primarily on af Klint’s body of work, The Paintings for the Temple, which dates from 1906–15. The sequential nature of her work is highlighted by the inclusion in the exhibition of numerous paintings from key series, some never-before exhibited in the UK.
