Paul Klee exhibition

  • Nov 8, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Paul Klee is a giant of twentieth-century art and one of the great creative innovators of the time.  Witty, inventive, magical, his exquisite paintings resist easy classification. He is mentioned in the same breath as Matisse, Picasso and his Bauhaus contemporary Kandinsky. He cuts a radical figure in European modernism.

At Tate Modern this autumn, you can rediscover Klee’s extraordinary body of work and see it in a new light. Paintings, drawings and watercolours from collections around the world will be reunited and displayed alongside each other as the artist originally intended, often for the first time since Klee exhibited them himself.

The heart of the exhibition will focus on the decade Klee spent teaching and working at the Bauhaus, the hotbed of modernist design.

The 1930s then brought about radical changes. Having moved to Düsseldorf, Klee was dismissed from his new teaching position by the Nazis and took refuge in Switzerland with his family, while his works were removed from collections and labelled ‘degenerate art’ in Germany.

Paul Klee, 'Comedy' 1921

    Through the economic turmo8l of the 1920s and the political extremism of the following decade Klee remained an internationalist. That is one reason why I like him. I loved the work produced after WW I.And the work produced in the last 5 years of his life.

    One of the best retrospectives I've seen recently. Fantastic variety and virtuosity - one of the great painters of the 20th Century

    Dear All,
    Following Maja's message I suggest that we meet inside the Tate Modern, just outside the main shop on the ground floor.

    I won't have a meet up sign with me, however I am wearing a light blue cardigan and a black skirt with large grey circles, so I should be easy to spot!. I'll be there just before 7.

    We then have a chance to introduce ourselves and chat before going into the exhibition...

    Look forward to seeing you all later,
    Mona

    November 8, 2013

  • Maja

    If all else fails I will be at the ticket area just after 7 to collect my ticket so I will meet those coming later there.

  • Kim

    Bit confused now after receiving the email - is the meetup time at 7 or before 7? And I have a ticket for 7:30 entry, not 7...

    November 8, 2013

    • Maja

      Those who arrive before 7 can meet Mona, the rest can arrive after 7 and meet the rest. It is quite a large group. I also have a ticket for 7:30

  • Zofia

    I was wondering if I could join someone who has a membership card, as the ticket is quite expensive (for me, freelancer...). In exchange, I could take this person to a classical music concert or a theatre as I receive many invitations at lower price/free for these type of events. If interested, please get in touch via email. Many thanks!

    Are there any volunteers who can help me co-host this event. Please drop me an email if you are happy to be a co-host. Thanks!

    Asking again: Does everyone have a ticket for the exhibition? There is no point in RSVPing if you don't have one.

  • Anna F.

    Are we going for a bite to eat afterwards? There are lots of nice restaurants nearby.

    September 17, 2013

    • Marion

      Hi Anna, it might be a bit difficult to find a restaurant which is happy to take in 15+ people without a booking. I would say we stick to the original plan. They're serving food as well.

      September 18, 2013

  • Maja

    Everyone who purchases a ticket for the exhibition can join us. I have just removed the limit on numbers.
    We will meet for drinks at the Tate Modern bar after seeing the exhibition.
