Short review of Futurism at Tate Modern

  1. I agree: Futurism itself was a great movement that tried to embrace all art forms. But the Tate’s show was an abysmal failure to live up to that ideal… where was the architecture of Sant’Elia, the music of Russolo, the photography, the cinema… ?

    And it was so badly laid out, people were literally wandering around looking lost. I think the Tate let Futurism down.

    My review is at:

  2. Karl casts an interesting perspective on the absence of music, architecture that were big Futurist themes, not included at the Tate exhbition. Encouraged me to learn more, so thanks again Karl.
