50 years of abstract painting at Tate St Ives

Forty-nine artists from the 1960s onwards are showing how abstract painting has stayed relevant in a new exhibition at Tate St Ives.

Selected by British painter Daniel Sturgis, the exhibition titled 'the Indiscipline of Painting' looks at how abstract painting has been revisited and reinvented by artists over the last 50 years. It goes on to demonstrate the way in which the history and legacy of abstract painting continues to inspire artists working today. The show brings together works by British, American and European artists made over the last five decades and features major new commissions and loans. It includes important works by Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, Gerhard Richter and Bridget Riley alongside other lesser known artists such as Tomma Abts, Martin Barr, Mary Heilmann and Jeremy Moon.
