The exhibition, International Exchanges: Modern Art and St Ives 1915–1965, is co-curated by Rachel Smith from the University of York’s Department of History of Art. Collaborating with the Tate Research Centre for Creative Communities, Rachel’s PhD work focuses on post-war artists in St Ives.
Exploring the wider national and international contexts which shaped art in St Ives in the 1940s, 50s and 60s, the exhibition will run until 28 September 2014 at Tate St Ives and moves to MIMA (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art) on 25 October to 25 January 2015.
From a broad critical perspective, the exhibition explores the distinction between art and craft and re-evaluates the notion that artists from that period often worked in isolation.
In addition to Rachel, the exhibition is led by Chris Stephens, Lead Curator of Modern British Art at Tate Britain and Sara Matson, Curator at Tate St Ives. It will be accompanied by an illustrated catalogue published by the gallery and a series of Tate Papers published in association with Tate’s Research Centre for Creative Communities.
