At the exhibition“New times, new pleasures” In the Tate Liverpool gallery, more than forty works by the famous artist Fernand Leger (1881 - 1955) have been collected. He was fascinated by the dynamism of modern life. His paintings, frescoes, film and fabrics were filled with the turmoil and rhythm of the metropolis. He painted on photographs and experimented with new forms of communication that were rapidly developing in the “mechanical” twentieth century, such as design, advertising, and graphic design.
Creativity Leger strongly depended on his environment and modern life. The exhibition includes his collaborations with architects Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand, as well as the 1924 experimental film “Mechanical Ballet”. This is the first in the last 30 years, a major exhibition of works of Leger in Britain. Its main theme is the artist’s desire to make art a part of everyday life.
After finishing the work in Tate, the exposition will move to the Institute of Contemporary Art of Valencia, where it will be open from May 2 to September 15, 2019.
