LONDON EXHIBITIONS / TATE MODERN

* Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Tate Modern
A retrospective of an avant-garde leader of the abstract movement
As well as her era-defining turned-wood Dada Heads, her involvement in the Parisian<www.cntraveller.com/gallery/paris-hotels> art scene and her geometric compositions, Sophie Taeuber-Arp is most remarkable for taking her artistic expression on an experimental journey that travelled through textiles, marionettes, sculpture, collage, embroidery and interiors<www.cntraveller.com/gallery/golden-interiors-around-the-world>. Constantly – and often controversially – pushing the boundaries of art, design<www.cntraveller.com/gallery/green-interior-design> and craft, her multidisciplinary approach to these mediums meant she was also pushing her own boundaries. This posthumous exhibition explores that sense of being perpetually in development – unfinished, open-ended and leaving space for those that follow in her footsteps.
Address: Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 9TG Telephone: +44 20 7887 8888 Website: tate.org.uk<www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern/exhibition/sophie-taeuber-arp> Dates: Until Sunday 17 October Price: £16

INTRODUCING MICHAEL BRUZON

Profile
Michael is based in Winchester and Head of Art School at Winchester College.
He studied Fine Art at Oxford Brookes University, later returning to gain an MA in Education, focusing on the teaching of art. Michael’s teaching informs his own practice and vice versa.
Fascinated by narratives of time and place, his work is informed by experiences of remote rural environments where tidal cycles, prevailing weather and changing light conditions imprint memories, influencing the recall of a specific place.
Rooted in mark-making and drawing, Michael examines the relationship between visual source material, recalled imagery and experiences recorded in words. By exploring shifting perceptions of memory and past subliminal influences, he looks at the past through the lens of the present.
Alongside his fine art practice and teaching career, Michael has also been artist in residence at Brentford Football Club. He has exhibited throughout the UK and internationally, both in solo and group exhibitions.
Coastal Gallery is delighted to feature a selection of Michael’s work, particularly pieces inspired by the Isle of Wight.
