Abstract

Unfinished Business, curated by Teresa Poulton, forges another link on the continuum of modernism in which the teachings of the Bauhaus still hold such great prominence. Richard Hamilton, working with Victor Pasmore at Newcastle University, developed a 'basic course’ for teaching, based upon ideas from the Bauhaus which introduced students to the concept of unity between art, craft, and technology. With this they disseminated modern abstraction for another generation of artists, assuring the Bauhaus would not become just a footnote in art history. The diversity of artistic practice and approaches to abstraction is the commonality between the works, maintaining the progression and ensuring the longevity and enduring truth of modernist abstraction.
