Malevich - The Russian Revolutionary

A new show in London at Tate Modern brings us the work of Kazimir Malevich, a man who influenced art in the early twentieth century and whose ideas are still radical today.

Responsible for the invention of suprematism, which its use of  bold colours and stark abstract shapes, Malevich returned to figurative painting in later life, a return which is echoed in the hanging of the show at the Tate. It is a fantastic exhibition and for those unable to get to it, for a few more days there is a documentary on iPlayer by the architect Zaha Hadid which explores the artist's effect on her own work.
