A survey of abstraction from the Sainsbury Centre collections and paintings by renowned artist, curator and art historian John Golding


Abstract art was a great invention of the twentieth century. This exhibition is in two parts; first, it surveys the origins and full development of abstract art at the beginning of the century, and then displays a selection of works of the artist John Golding.

Showcasing the diversity and variety of modes of abstraction, the exhibition explores key elements of natural, geometric and lyrical abstraction alongside associated movements including Cubism, Vorticism, Orphism, Purism, De Stijl, Suprematism, The Bauhaus, Minimalism and Conceptualism.

As painter, teacher and scholar, John Golding held a lifelong fascination with the origins
and evolution of abstraction. Following the gift of the artist’s works to the Sainsbury Centre in 2014, a selection of Golding’s paintings will be on display for the first time.
