ART SEEN - Klee & Kandinsky
Our local artist, Steph Fonteyn, has been our and about on the art scene. So what has she seen this week? Kandinsky, and his friend Klee.
Klee & Kandinsky Exhibition
When: 19/06/2015 – 27/09/2015 (Tue-Sun 10am – 5pm )
Where: Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern - (10 years of ZPK 2005 to 2015)
This exhibition presents more than 180 works of Klee & Kandinsky, the founding fathers of abstract art, with works from 1900 to beyond 1940.
The artists were neighbours and lifelong friends.
The exhibition is structured into eight theme areas:
- Around 1900
- The Blue Rider
- New beginning
By pairing the works of these two artists alongside each other, their similarities are accentuated; their mutual influence on each other, and at the same time their differences.
Witness one of the most significant transitions in modern art – from representational imagery to abstract compositions of colours and shapes.
MUSIC in ART – Kandinsky spoke of “inner harmony”. Klee who played the violin, created analogies to musical structures.
Standard CHF24, OAP CHF22, Students CHF12, Children age 6 to 16 CHF8
Steph's Hot tips:
The Creaviva workshops for kids were an amazing find. They're one hour workshops and they're on every 12pm, 2pm or 4pm.
