It has been a century since Marinetti (a not so excellent Italian poet) kick started the Futurist movement with the publication of the Futurist Manifesto. Expressing dynamism and rapid change, Futurism struck a cord with artists coming to terms with new elements of modern life. The Tate Modern celebrates the centenary of Futurism with an exhibition exploring key figures, works, and also the movements that reacted to Futurism.
Read a review of the exhibition from the Telegraph. Visit the show until September 20, 2009.
