1973, Agnes Martin From early ex­per­i­ments to her fi­nal paint­ing in 2004, Amer­i­can ab­stract artist Agnes Martin’s un­der­stated yet sub­tly evoca­tive work tours in­ter­na­tion­ally. Ex­pect a de­cep­tively quiet at­mos­phere at ‘Agnes Martin’, sim­mer­ing with un­der­ly­ing emo­tions.

Just as Martin’s art had be­gun to gain mo­men­tum, she de­cided to break away from New York’s bur­geon­ing scene and fi­nally ended up in New Mexico, where she lived out the rest of her days. This proved to be any­thing but detri­men­tal to the artist, who in 1973 be­gan a se­ries of min­i­mal, ex­pres­sively slow-burn­ing paint­ings, us­ing bold geo­met­ric forms, colour washes, and grids. Un­til Oc­to­ber 11 at Tate Mod­ern, Lon­don. www.tate.org.uk
