Out of the Frame: Scottish Abstraction

McManus: Dundee's Art Gallery and Museum

4 Nov 2016 – 23 Apr 2017

Exploring the work of Scottish artists who have experimented with abstraction.

Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Orange, Black & Lilac Squares on Vermillion, 1968

Emerging as a style in the early 20th century, abstraction gave artists the opportunity to explore colour, form and means of expression in new and innovative ways.

Since then it has become a central stream of modern art and has been embraced by creatives all over the world.

On display here are works by the Scottish artists who have delved into the abstract, including Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and Calum Innes.

The exhibition also presents the gallery's major new acquisition by Victoria Morton.
