Inventing Abstraction 1910-1925

Article by sam

INVENTING ABSTRACTION 1910-1925 is the catalogue from the current MOMA exhibit of the same name, which celebrates the emergence of abstract art. This shift toward abstract art occurred simultaneously in a variety of different countries as artists looked to nature, architecture, machines, film, geometry, and music for inspiration. The text tracks how early abstract works developed and what they meant to their creators. The focus on process and transformation shows the art’s urgency and importance to the contemporary art world now more than a century later.
