Takis

‘Much of his work is not seen. It’s sound, light, movement; in other words, it’s energy.’ This is how Ferran Barenblit, Director of MACBA, describes the work of the Greek artist Takis (1925 –2019). Dedicated to this key figure of the avant-garde, the publication includes essays by Guy Brett, independent critic and curator; Michael Wellen, Tate’s Curator of International Art; Melissa Warak, specialist in avant-garde art and music; and an interview with the writer and critic Maïten Bouisset. All the texts focus on key aspects of Takis’s evolution: from his youth in an occupied and impoverished Greece to his interest in materials, music, magnetism and chance.

This solo exhibition has been organised by Tate Modern and will tour to MACBA, Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona in 2019.
