Curated London

It's abstract a-go-go at Tate Modern right now. Visitors who enjoy the blockbuster Paul Klee exhibition would do well to climb the escalator to see this huge retrospective of Mira Schendel. Swiss-born Schendel emigrated to Brazil in 1949, at the age of 30. Over the four decades that followed, she produced a vast and accomplished body of work, much of which is on display here. Much of her output is extremely simple in concept, and leans toward the abstract. Many viewers will find this somewhat wearisome, particularly given the volume of work on display. There are a number of knockout pieces, though, that make it worth persevering to the end. For more of the latest arts reviews, check out www.curatedlondon.co.uk
