SOL LEWITT : WALL DRAWING #1136
Dec 3, 2013 - Jun 8, 2014
Sol LeWitt was a pioneer of minimal and conceptual art, known in particular for his series of graphite and later, ink and acrylic wall drawings, executed in a particular site according to a set of guidelines written by the artist.
Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing #1136 goes on display in Turner Contemporary’s Clore Learning Studio, a beautiful space with superb views out to the North Sea. The artist’s affinity for nature is particularly acute in this work, which employs the colours of the spectrum, plus grey, to dazzling effect.

Jan 25 - May 11, 2014
This major exhibition juxtaposes the work of two painters: JMW Turner and the Abstract Expressionist artist Helen Frankenthaler. The exhibition explores the idea that as fellow-travellers in landscape, JMW Turner and Helen Frankenthaler share fundamental qualities in their use of paint and colour, form and narrative. The exhibition is curated by Turner scholar James Hamilton, whose writings on nineteenth and twentieth century art have explored the continuing resonance of Turner's life and work across the past two hundred years.

MONDRIAN AND COLOUR
May 24 - Sep 21, 2014
Turner Contemporary offers an exclusive UK viewing of the first major exhibition to consider the significance of colour during Piet Mondrian’s early career. Mondrian and Colour explores Mondrian’s (1872-1944) practice, tracing the painter’s use of colour from figuration to early abstraction. Bringing together around 40 paintings by the artist from the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and other collections in Europe and the USA, the exhibition will demonstrate that Mondrian’s abstract works were not simply mathematical exercises in form but also expressed his search for a new universal harmony. Turner Contemporary is working in partnership with Tate Liverpool, who will present the concurrent exhibition Mondrian and his Studios: Abstraction into the World from 6 June until 21 September 2014.

JEREMY DELLER : ENGLISH MAGIC
Oct 4, 2014 - Jan 11, 2015
Commissioned by the British Council this new exhibition by Jeremy Deller was conceived and created for the British Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia in 2013. The exhibition reflects the roots of much of Deller’s work, focusing on British society such as its people, icons, myths, folklore and its cultural and political history. Deller weaves together high and low, popular and rarefied to create unique and thought provoking work. The exhibition forms part of a national tour, supported by the Art Fund and the first of its kind, that concludes at Turner Contemporary.
