Abakanowicz at Tate Modern

*Last Week - Ends 21st May* UK Premiere exhibition of Magdalena Abakanowicz's radical woven sculptures at the Tate Modern.

17 November 2022 – 21 May 2023

A UK premiere exhibition exploring Magdalena Abakanowicz’s famous series of woven sculptures known as Abakans, whose radical form and format revolutionised sculpture art and pioneered a new form of installation when they first appeared in the late 1960s.

This exhibition presents a rare opportunity to explore Abakanowicz’s extraordinary body of work.

Many of the most significant Abakans will be brought together in a forest-like display in the 64-metre long gallery space of the Blavatnik Building at Tate Modern.

Magdalena Abakanowicz was born in 1930 in Poland and came of age during the Second World War. Living in Poland under the Communist regime, she established a career as an international artist and her work is included in many public and private collections around the world.
