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.

KRIJN DE KONING : DWELLING (MARGATE / FOLKESTONE)
Jul 31 - Nov 2, 2014
Turner Contemporary presents Dwelling (Margate / Folkestone), the first public commission in England by Dutch artist Krijn de Koning. This new temporary artwork has been produced by Turner Contemporary for its Summer of Colour festival and Folkestone Triennial 2014, and is the first time Turner Contemporary and the Creative Foundation have collaborated on an artist commission.
The artwork, a colourful architectural labyrinthine walkway, is conceived and sited in two different outdoor locations in Kent: Turner Contemporary’s South Terrace adjacent to the gallery and within a Victorian grotto on Folkestone seafront. The work appears simultaneously in both locations this summer as part of Turner Contemporary’s Summer of Colour festival and Lookout, the third Folkestone Triennial.
JEREMY DELLER : ENGLISH MAGIC
Oct 11, 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.
