Welcome to the new look website for http://www.vorticism.co.uk, courtesy of WordPress.  Here I will keep you up to date with the latest news in the world of Vorticism.

Vorticism is going to be a century old in 2014.  Any anniversary celebrations I hear about will be posted here.

If you know of any plans to celebrate or mark 100 years of Vorticism or the magazine BLAST please let me know, or add a comment.

    I would be very grateful to be kept informed about any 2014 commemorations of the Vorticist movement that will take place in London. I am slated to spend some of the summer in the UK on a research opportunity. My specialty has been Modernist art and literature movements, and I am especially interested in V. and Italian Futurism, German Expressionism, other parallel tendencies in both visual and written arts. I would appreciate knowing where in London I could view the works of Lewis and others (Tate?…) both on an ongoing basis and for special emphasis in the year 2014.
    If you can let me know how I might inform myself more and possibly take part, thanks very much.

      Hi Mark
      Thanks for your comments – I will put any news on this page, and will also sort out a web page listing what Vorticist works there are in collections in GB. You are right, the Tate is the first stop… I hope to get some useful information on this site to help you plan your visit in the weeks ahead. Keep checking back regularly and enjoy your visit!

    I don’t know whether you will be interested in this, but one of my son’s oldest friends graduated from Glasgow School of Art this year (2013). For his graduation exhibition he included some of his own paintings based upon Vorticism and so new Vortist art was exhibited some 99 years later at Glasgow’s School of Art Degree Show in 2013. http://www.flickr.com/photos/glasgowschoolart/9066580050/

      Thanks for sharing this with us, Ann. The pictures are superb – I am sure he will go far! Is anybody else painting in a Vorticist style 100 years on?
