Adventures of the Black Square: Abstract Art and Society 1915-2015

  • Rated as: 4/5

Fun fact of the year, and it’s only January: under the military junta in Argentina in the 1970s, Venn diagrams were banned, since they illustrated collaboration and collective action. This is just one of the unexpected turns taken by this show tracing the course of geometric abstraction across the last century.

Can't recommend this enough! It exceeded all expectations. A Victorian Obsession:The Pérez Simón Collection at Leighton House Museum is a sumptuous feast for the senses. A mystery trip for my husband, this exhibition was the highlight of a New Years Day out. The house itself is a vibrant Arabian blue treasure box sitting just off Kensington High Street but factor in the glowing, often familiar, art works that currently adorn the walls, then "the richest chocolate-box art show in town" truly is "the bottom line". A must see.
