The exhibition (10 February – 6 May 2018), with work by thirty-eight artists, marks the opening of the new Kettle’s Yard and seeks to reassert the potential of art as a poetic, social and political force in the world.
Inspired by a letter by artist Naum Gabo, Actions reflects the energising diversity and breadth of art in the modern and contemporary period within the UK and internationally.
Idris Khan is one of nine artists commissioned to make a new work for the exhibition. His work features stamped extracts from Gabo’s 1944 letter and Herbert Read’s reply.
