Electromagnetic: Modern Art in Northern Europe 1918–1931

Though artist like Fernard Léger and Juan Gris were working in Paris in 1920s, they also had a big impact on artist of Northern Europe. 

The exhibition curated by Gladys C. Fabre shed more light on the work of the Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian artists of the period.

The Basis of Concrete Painting (Art Concret, No. 1, April 1930)
  • Art in universal.
  • The construction of a painting and its elements should be simple and direct in its visualization.
  • The technique should be mechanical, that is to say, precise rather than impressionistic.

For me it was like a breath of fresh air... very impressive and inspiring
