The EY Exhibition: Sonia Delaunay

Tate Modern: 15 April 9 August 2015
Sonia Delaunay (1885–1979) was a key figure in the Parisian avant-garde and became the
European doyenne of abstract art.  Alongside her husband, Robert Delaunay, she pioneered the
movement Simultanism.  Her exploration of the interaction between colours has created a
sense of depth and movement throughout her oeuvre.Throughout the first half of the twentieth century, she celebrated the modern world of movement, technology and urban life, exploring new ideas about colour theory together with her husband Robert Delaunay.

This is the first UK retrospective to assess the breadth of her vibrant artistic practice across a wide range of media. It features the groundbreaking paintings, textiles and clothes she made across a sixty-year career, as well as the results of her innovative collaborations with poets, choreographers and manufacturers, from Diaghilev to Liberty.

“This show makes a powerful argument for Delaunay as a true radical: ahead of her time, supremely relevant to ours.” – Ben Luke, Evening Standard
