• Short Summary

    Review of "This is Tomorrow" exhibition held in Whitechapel gallery - fascinating and trendy!

  • Description

    London.

    Panning C/U shot of a white modernist sculpture called 'Woman' (lots of curves and holes). Long panning shot of the chequered panelled wall - psychedelic! Cut to a circling wire construction - another sculpture. Panning shot of a block wall with some of the blocks sticking out.

    These are some of the artefacts exhibited in the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London under the name "This is Tomorrow" and "it is devoted to collaboration between architects, painters and sculptors". Exhibition, thanks to its modernist approach, challenges the prejudices of 'high art' and opens the new horizons.

    L/S of the 'ultra modern wall' construction. C/U shot of pointed ornament sticking out of the 'ultra modern wall'. C/U shot of a round ornament sticking out of the 'ultra modern wall'. Succession of shots of several other abstract (non-figurative) sculptures and paintings - fascinating!

    Voiceover concludes "Strange - exasperating - too much for some people to swallow - but giving everybody something to think about."
